"Lumbar Puncture Out Patient Procedure"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I have recently been seen by one of the consultants for severe headaches and vision problems. I had scans and needed an out-patient lumbar puncture procedure. The staff were all excellent and I could not fault them. I am confident that I will continue to receive the same standard of care and I cannot express how gratefull I am as I was quite nervous about the procedure and associated treatments
