I have had three of these scans before and on each occasion it has been carried out by Consultants who you could have a conversation about the process but it looks like this has been downgraded ..I have no idea to what as she didn't introduce herself.
I had a bottle of OJ with me and she snappily said I couldn't drink it during the process ( which I had no intention of doing) but she said, almost grudgingly, I could take it in with me.
Initially she said that my GP had asked that a Doctor see me at the clinic and when I asked if it was in the Clinic I was at or the other one that Cardiology uses she said it would be in the one I was at.
She did the scan with hardly a word spoken except asking me to change position or take breaths.
At the end of the procedure she said that if a Doctor was to see me I would get a letter sent out to attend the clinic ...This was not the impression I placed on what she told me earlier and I said so but she said this wasn't what she said and I was only there to get the scan done.
I must say this is in no way typical of staff at this hospital but I think some do need their interpersonal skills sorted out.
