"Pathology - blood test"

About: Christchurch Hospital

Had a great experience today visiting Christchurch hospital. Not very good at having blood taken as I have passed out previously when visiting RBH. Had a lovely nurse take me into a room where I could lay down and have blood taken - no fuss, no bruise, will go there from now on. Would most definitely recommend to anyone who hates blood tests. They are brilliant and highly professional.

Response from Christchurch Hospital

Dear Liz

Thank you for so positively recommending the pathology service at Christchurch hospital, it is a service we are proud of and we hope, with the redevelopment of the services at Christchurch more extensively utilised in the future.

Your praise for the service you received will certainly help others who find blood tests difficult so thank you for your encouragement.

I will pass on your comments to the team at Christchurch as I know they will appreciate hearing about your experience.
