"Breast screening"

About: Broadgreen Hospital

I was very concerned at the way I was treated during breast screening. after entering a brand new unit with latest technology tv screens showing things like beach scenes.. brand new furniture and glossy decoration - I found there was no gown in the changing cubicle to cover myself - when I asked for a gown I was abruptly told 'The NHS can't afford gowns!" absolutely shocked and disgusted - felt embarrassed and stressed as I walked out for the procedure naked to the waist ! This needs to be sorted.
