"My first ever CT Scan experience."
About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital Royal Bournemouth General Hospital Bournemouth BH7 7DW
I have had cause to complain about one particular department at this hospital in the past year but I cannot praise the CT scan department highly enough. I was instructed to attend my 17.15 apointment a little early which I duly did about 16.45. After being checked in, I was asked to take a seat but before I could do so, a nurse appeared with a large drink of water which I was instructed to consume together with a second. Thinking I would be in for a long wait while this worked it's merry way, I took a seat and opened my book. Before I finished my second cup, I was politely called in and advised the book would not be necessary. I was dealt with in a courteous and professional manner by all members of the team, given clear unambiguous instructions about the gowns, my belongings, the intravenous dye procedure and kept fully informed throughout my visit. By 17.20, I was heading for the main exit and on my way home. Well done all!
