"Yes we scan"

About: Poole General Hospital

I'm on holiday in the area and was referred to Poole hospital for a scan. My appointment was for 09.00 hours and, after eventually finding a. the car park, b. a parking space and c. Ansty ward (not mentioned anywhere, but my wife and I were guided by a very helpful doctor (assumed to be because they had a stethoscope around their neck!)) I checked in on time and was seen bang on time. They took the blood and the vital statistics and could not have been kinder. I was told to return at 10.00 for a 10.15 scan and this went to the minute. The staff member who did the scan was extremely thorough and put my mind at rest that there was not a problem. Overall the standard of service and attitudes of staff were exemplary.Thank you.
