"Breast screening"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I found a lump on my breast. I went to see my doctor, and was given an appointment choice within the week at burnley to suit me. When I came for my appointment I had a consultation,mammogram,ultra sound then seen again by the consultant with my results all within 2 hours. The staff were all extremely friendly and kind. This is without question the best nhs service I have ever had. 10 out of 10.
