"I would nomally panic but she was so calming"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

(as the patient),

My treatment was some time ago now, but I was looking at your website and saw the opportunity to give some feedback, so am doing so!

What I would normally find a very stressful and frightening experience was not so because the lady who did the ultrasound (Hilary) was calm, kind and gave me every confidence in what she was doing.

I would normally panic when undergoing certain tests and scans, but her ability to treat me in an atmosphere which was so calming was such a help. I was so grateful. She couldn't have done any better!
