"MRI Department"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

My appointment was at 6:35pm which I thought was a mistake at first. There was no one in the department except for signs asking patients with appointments to wait in the waiting area until a staff member collects them. A nurse appeared 10 mins before my appointment for MRI patients and took us all to another waiting area, and just left us there. It states that I would go into my appointment on time unless there was a emergency. There was no emergency and I waited a further 30 mins before a nurse came and went through a form I had already filled in again with me in a patronising manner! The changing rooms open onto the waiting area so you may be unfortunate enough to have to dress in a gown and sit there in front of other male and female patients and their family and friends. It was very uncomfortable and embarrassing, you didn't know where to look! I would not recommend this department unless you are an exibitionist!
