"Staff in X-ray put me at ease"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

I had an appointment for a CT scan when I was a patient in ward 6.

Really worried about having to get this procedure as I had never had one before. Plus the outcome of what was wrong with me, I was nervous.

Shouldn't have been, although the staff at the Xray department were really busy they took the time to put me at ease, explained everything to me and I was no longer worried.

For anyone who has to have this same procedure, it's nothing to worry about as the staff there are amazing.

Thanks to the staff in Xray/CT scanner.

Dear Audrey 68

Thank you for taking the time to post your experience within the Radiology department of Monklands Hospital.

I appreciate undergoing investigations and worrying about the results can be a very stressful time; I'm glad the staff were able to put you at ease. I will pass on your kind comments to the staff.

Kind regards
