"visit to breast clinic"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

I attended the breast clinic today and was very impressed with the whole set up. All staff were professional and kind, the consultant empathic and attentive and I felt well cared for and safe. I would like to say thank you to everyone who is involved-it's a difficult clinic to go to when you are anxious about the outcome but I felt I was in the best place for my care. The basket system works well and the purple dressing gowns are big enough to cover up properly. Can I make a suggestion re the layout of the waiting area for the mammogram-the chairs are too close together and as staff had to walk down that corridor, we were constantly having to move our legs out of the way (near ultrasound room 2). Perhaps one set of the 3 chairs could be moved round the corner on to the spare bit of wall?
