In common with most women I did not relish the prospect of undergoing this screening test and I was a little apprehensive. However I needn’t have worried because from the moment I arrived until the moment I left I was put at ease and treated with the utmost dignity and respect. I am a wheelchair user and can’t always move as quickly as other people. At all times my needs were considered and I was able to undergo the screening in a relaxed way without feeling rushed or hurried.Christine (68) from Grimsby
The radiographer who carried out my appointment was so understanding and skillful. I was quite nervous and apprehensive about the appointment. I explained my worries to the radiographer and she was so kind and reassuring.Rosemary (66)
Thank you for the excellent care you gave me when I attended for screening.Nina (70)
You were so kind, and to me, that is more important than anything.Alison (62) from Grimsby
From the venue, through the procedure and travelling home I felt very settled after being greeted and treat very politely, kind, caring and considerate. There was even a little time for a question or two.Marion (67) from Grimsby
