"Appt. at Chest Clinic."

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I have recently had occasion to visit the chest clinic at the hospital and I can honestly say that my care was second to none. The only criticism being x-ray- having to walk from my cubicle (after having a lengthy wait inside what can only be described as a cupboard), past other patients and relatives (male and female) wearing only a gown. I do feel that my privacy was not respected in this case. From the moment I checked in at "Clinic C" I was spoken to politely, my symptoms were listened to and my breathing diagnostic was completed professionally. Even when I had a short wait for my blood test, I was informed of the situation and then apologised to the 10 min wait. Thanks to all.
