"Gossiping during my exercise test"

About: Harefield Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I went for an exercise test in February 2015. The test was going well until a staff member came in and started gossiping with the person that was doing my test about another staff member. I got the idea there might be some bullying among the workforce.

The test went well but I felt the attitude was that they were quite big headed and rude. Just my opinion.
