"MRI Scan"

About: Grantham & District Hospital

I had my MRI scan on Saturday the 19th March first thing i was feeling a little nervous as i hate confined spaces. the staff from the minute i arrived were so helpful, particularly the person who put me in the scanner. They put me at ease and took my mind off the scan so that when i went in i was not even thinking about what i was doing, thank you so much for something i was dreading was not so bad after all.

Response from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Dear Mr Raynor.

I'm so glad that your MRI scan was not too much of an unpleasant experience for you. MRI scanners can be a bit daunting, especially for people who suffer with claustrophobia, but it's heartening to hear that the staff are doing all they can to make you feel at ease, and get the images that the doctors need to help with your diagnosis.

I have passed your comments onto the staff. It's nice to get such lovely feedback, and it always makes them feel appreciated. Thank you, once again.
