"Upset at xray department"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I have had to have total knee replacement and at the same time as the previous persons comments, as an inpatient I couldn't have been treated better. Porters willing to share a joke, efficient technician doing the xray.

A few days later my wife had hurt her knee preparing my return from surgery. Her GP sent her for X-ray at the very same unit.

She said to the technician "I hope it's nothing serious as I need to stay mobile (because of me coming home etc) and was greeted by, and I quote:

"I am not in a position to tell you...even if I was, I'm not paid enough to anyway."

My wife felt very let down by the statement of this person but being more concerned for me at the time didn't say anything.
