"X-Ray Dept CT Scan"

About: County Hospital (Stafford)

I had cause to visit the x-ray dept last week for a CT Scan. I have real issues with these scans as I am claustrophobic. Although I have had CT Scans before, I have never coped well with them. The staff in the department were absolutely fantastic. They all introduced themselves by name and i explained my problem to them. They did everything they could to put me at ease. The radiographers were so patient and understanding. They explained everything and we even had a trial go at going into the scanner. They helped calm my fears and we were able to go through with the scan. I cannot thank them enough for what they did.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Stafford Hospital.
