"Ripley hospital x Ray department"

About: Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

I went for an ultra sound scan which was undertaken by a trainee sonographer. 2 students and a radiologist were present during the scan. At no point was the number one concern the patient (me) they were so intent on getting the procedure correct rather than the wellbeing of the patient. At no point was I involved in the process of the scan and my wellbeing was completely ignored. I left the hospital upset and disappointed.
