"Well Done To All Concerned"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Anything else?

I underwent and abdominal MRI scan on Saturday the 4th of May 2013, and as I thought I'd be I was extremely anxious - especially as I am a wheelchair user due to Spina Bifida, but from entering the department, the reception staff were extremely friendly to going through to have the procedure, to say I was grateful for their love and support is an understatement.

A lady was asked through to help me change into a gown (then back again afterwards) and nothing was too much trouble for her!!

The two men doing the scan were fantastic with me, and their sense of humours second to none, within seconds my nerves eased.

Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.
