"Referral to Neurology Department"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

I was referred to the Neurology department by my doctor following server headaches and dizziness. I found that all the staff from the porters through to the chief consultant were extremely friendly and helpful. I had to have a variety of tests such as a CT scan, lumber puncture and an MRI scan. Although I had to wait some time for the various tests to be carried out I was constantly being updated with the progress and more importantly the reason why such tests were being undertaken. Both consultants that I saw were very informative and explained in detail the outcome of all my results. Both my wife and I felt that I had received a thorough examination which we were extremely grateful for. There are some excellent individuals within the NHS who work under difficult circumstances and people should try and remember that.
