"Seem to treat NHS patients very differently..."

Claremont Hospital has not contacted me but has instead had the radiographer who performed the scan who is actually from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals call.

She asked why I thought the other patients were private - as the unhygienic cupboard I had to leave my belongings in (with the clean and worn gowns) is apparently for private patients as well.

Obviously she did not read my complaint fully as she would have noted that I was spoken to differently and not given the same courtesy of being told how long the scan would take or being given the chance to ask when/where I could obtain my results.

Do not know how they came by my telephone number as it was not on the safety form that I completed and handed to them.
