"Lumbar puncture"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital / Neurology

I attended ward E55 today accompanied by a friend . I cannot speak highly enough for the care and attention to detail given to me during my procedure. The Nurse Consultant was extremely considerate and the master of one liners, - jokes I mean! It was a room full of of laughs and free of any tension. I did have trepidation going , so many horror stories , however the entire procedure was totally painless, hit the mark in one go, (they were so clever!) it was all over in a matter of minutes! Well done to the person who assisted.,... My veins are a nuisance I know. ......
