"MRI -Department"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I attended for a MRI yesterday, I was nervous having had one before and not liking it. This one was with contrast so added to the nerves was an injection and dye put into my veins during the scan. The team were so helpful, kind and explained and reassured me. I had talked myself out of having it done by the time I reached the department but the staff and team were excellent and treated me well all the way through. The scan took longer than we all expected but they gave me updates all throughout. I wouldn't rush to have one again (!) but at least I know I would be looked after. Thanks team, Department doesn't appear on drop down
