"Anxiety of the unknown"

About: King George Hospital

After a visit to my GP it was suggested I have an ultrasound immediately. Having the luxury of Private Medical Insurance I rang them and was told a consent form would be posted off to me. Meanwhile I went to King George who stated as the request was marked urgent they would try to make an appointment ASAP. Believe it or not the very next day I had an appointment for four days later. The attention was excellent the response was quicker than my private medical and full marks to King George for such first class service. My anxiety was finally satisfied when my diagnosis was described as not sinister. I have at my age unfortunately met many people who have had cause to attend King George and they all have nothing but praise for the staff and facilities. They cover a huge catchment area and under the circumstances a lot of critism is totally unjustified.
