"Excellent communication, respect and can-do..."

About: Churchill Hospital

Last week (November 2014) I took my profoundly handicapped sister for an MRI scan of her back. Every stage of getting treatment for my sister is always complicated. The Churchill staff coped well with communication prior to the appointment, getting appropriate consent for the procedure and communication during our visit. They were un rushed and gave us space and time to give my sister the best chance of understanding and complying with what was required of her. They adapted their procedure to her needs, as far as possible. We felt we were in safe, capable and humane hands.
