"Xray department opposite Clinic 1"

About: King's Mill Hospital

I was referred for an xray by my GP. Once I got to the Xray department I was called through and met a member of staff who told me to get changed into a gown and questioned the reasons why I was there. I explained that my GP had referred me and they stated that I was wasting both of our time. After being admitted to Queens Medical Centre in the past and having numerous x-ray's I have got to know the questions they always ask prior to x-ray. Not once was I asked if I was pregnant or the date of my last period which I am certain is a must. When trying to answer the questions they interrupted me and it made me uncomfortable being there. My GP referred me for an x-ray so I dont understand why I was made to feel like that. I will not be choosing to go to Kings Mill again!
