"Blood test, Crawley Hospital, today."

About: Crawley Hospital / Clinical haematology

(as the patient),

I would like to say a huge thank you to the young man that took my blood today. I was dealt with so quickly and efficiently, I didn't even get his name. I was very nervous and his answer to my "I'm sorry, but I'm really bad at this. " Was met with "That's ok, I'm really good at it. "

Made me laugh and relax, and before I knew it ~ it was all done.

Please send on my thanks to a lovely chap. You have an excellent young man there.

I was seen at 1. 10pm, 13/03/14 in the Phlebotomy dept.
