"The teams arranged for my scan to be done immediately"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I had an appointment this morning at MRI at 8am. I had another appointment at CT for tomorrow morning. This meant two mornings without breakfast, two cannulas and two trips to hospital. The teams arranged for my CT scan to be done immediately after the MRI scan and both were completed and I left the hospital at 9. 45am. An appointment tomorrow was then available for someone else who needs it.

Everyone was friendly and helpful and a new experience was made very comfortable for me.

Thank you, it was very much appreciated.
