"Brief visit to St Michaels xray"
About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) Truro TR1 3LJ
My brief visit encapsulated all that is best about RCHT and how it should be for everyone, everytime they visit. Although it may be a lot easier to get right a simple xray, such as I had, than a hugely complicated episode of acute care it still warrants a big thank you to the staff involved and acknowledgement that the systems in place do work well - most of the time. The staff were kind, efficient and cheerful and saw me ahead of time, as soon as I pitched up. They picked up on an amendment to the form and very carefully checked the facts before proceeding - excellent diligence. The radiographer showed not only technical expertise and professionalism in carrying out the job but also a fine sense of how to treat and handle (literally) me as a person. It's great to know that such a great service till exists in the ground down NHS, and at RCHT in particular. But hey! Wait a minute! There's no xray or clinical imaging department listed in the next section - shame on you!
