About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Hi, I recently had to have a scan on my cervical spine, and I am very claustrophobic, I arrived very early for this scan with the idea that I may not have gone through with it. I was met with a very helpfull nurse who pursueded me to try, she put me at my ease and explained what was going to happen and just asked me to try it. I can only say a big thank you to this lady as the experience was not as bad as I had expected .For anyone who suffers with claustrophobia I can honestly say just give it a go and hopefully you will get the same care as I did. Thanks again.
