"Breast clinic"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

I was fast tracked to the brest clinic at my request by my Doctor. All staff were very kind and considerate to my needs. I was given mammograms, ultrasound and a fine needle aspiration, never felt any pain or discomfort during any of the procecures, although i was very nervous and anxious which under the circumstances was quite understandable i was put at ease.

Thank goodness i was given the all clear and i had nothing to worry about, but thank you once again.

Response from Cumberland Infirmary

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I can fully understand how anxious a time it must have been for you and am delighted you had such a positive experience.

The staff understand how upsetting it can be when a lady needs to come to the clinic and work very hard to make the visit as stress free as possible. I will pass your comments to the manager of the clinic for sharing with the staff and I wish you all the very best for the New Year.
