"Warmth and humanity "

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

(as the patient),

I am currently an inpatient in the John Radcliffe Hospital. I had an MRI scan and would like to thank the technician who chatted to me today.

On finishing the scan, the technician noticed I was wearing a Dolly Parton t-shirt. As the technician wheeled me back out into the waiting area for a porter to collect me, we had the most superb conversation about country music.

Sadly I didn't catch her name, but the Irish lady in the blue scrubs. Thank you! You enthusiasm was infectious and after a difficult day on the ward, your kindness and simple conversation helped me to feel like a person rather than a patient.
