"Cardio dept"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Just wanted to say how wonderful two particular staff were in diagnosing my heart problem. From my introduction to the Sister to being introduced to the Consultant, I felt I was the only patient that had been dealt with. I had to undress to the waist, a gown given and my dignity in tact as much as possible given where the doctor had to place scan etc. my diagnosis was explained in layman's English that I could understand. Although I need surgery, I feel quite as ease going down this road. Only hope my future care under another hospital lives up to the care at Queens. Thank you.
