"Short notice checkup"

I was referred to Abingdon EMU for a short notice health checkup by my doctor. On arrival I was brought straight through to the ward without waiting. The doctor spoke immediately with me to explain the process, then nurses efficiently and professionally performed the up front tests. Everything was kept calm and unstressed despite being busy and they managed to avoid any long wait on my part. After the tests were complete the doctor returned and talked through the results in detail, performing further physical checks and discussing my symptoms. No feeling of being rushed, and he was willing to answer all my questions. Very impressed with the service and facilities they had. Thanks to all there - keep up the good job.
