What I liked
I was referred to the Breast Care Clinic after finding a lump. I visited my GP on the Monday and by that Friday I had an appointment letter for the following Thursday, impressive by anyone's standards!
At the hospital I found them extremely warm & understanding of my fears and situation. I was given a mammogram that same morning and given the opportunity to see the physician I had seen who gave me preliminary feedback of the results. The radiographer was superb, very friendly & made a worrying procedure much more bearable. I was given an appointment to see the consultant before I left and the written confirmation arrived only 2 days later.
All in all a fantastic service, and they really seemed to be all too aware how terrifying finding a breast lump is.
So far in my treatment I cannot fault them all, including the warm receptionist.
I thought the friendly car park attendant very helpful too - worried that my appointment might take me over my alloted car park ticket time he advised just to phone down & give the car reg number.
