"Brilliant MRI Experience"

About: Trafford General Hospital

Just wanted to leave a review as i had to abandon my previous MRI due to anxiety/panic attack. i was rescheduled for another with sedation and the staff made me feel so comfortable and at ease. they allowed me to listen to music, and gave me special glasses so i could see out of the tube at all times. they also spoke to me after each noise sequence which made the whole experience so much easier and more pleasant. Just want to say a massive thank you as i found it really difficult and don't think i could have done it without the staff at Trafford General!!
