"my 2nd visit: amazing staff"

About: Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

This was my 2nd visit to this hospital. I phoned for x-ray appointment at 8. 30 offered a time of 10. 15. Brilliant. I thought that was quick. Anyway, my son said I will take you before work it will save you going on 2 bus trips. Left home 9. 00 I always like to arrive early. To my surprise speaking to reception staff (super lady), she said go down to x-ray department. Well, I just got to the seating outside and another nurse took me in, helped me with my coat shirt, and I could not have asked for better treatment anywhere. To cut a long story short, what super, polite staff. I was back sat in my sofa within exactly. 1 hour from leaving my home, a nearly 20 mile round trip.

Now please to all the people who moan about our super NHS, read this. This is my personal experience, I cannot praise the staff I met highly enough, Thanks ladies' you know who you are! One very grateful OAP. Be lucky, keep smiling!
