I went for ECG this am and I was not impressed with the treatment I have received. Bad points:
- radiographer and support worker were chatting about private matters, nothing to do with my treatment- total lack of professionalism
-the only time I was addressed was to be given instructions (undress, lie down, don't move)
- the radiographer did not introduced them-self to me nor made any attempt to make me feel at ease or explain what she is going to do
- I was not asked whether I know what the procedure involves or whether I give consent
- not once during the ECG I was asked whether I am comfortable or have I got any questions.
Considering that Salford Royal praise themselves to be personal and professional I certainly did not experience that. On a positive note the hospital is clean, always a bonus!
