About: Wansbeck Hospital Wansbeck Hospital Ashington NE63 9JJ
I want to thank all of the staff I met during my recent visit to the breast clinic at Wansbeck. I also work for the Trust which may make you think I am biased but I can assure you I am not. If anything it makes me more critical as I am well aware of the exacting standards expected of my colleagues and I even during times of severe pressure.
I had lived in terror for nearly 3 weeks having discovered a breast lump, but the appointment my GP said would arrive within 2 weeks of my consultation with them did just that. I was seen 2 weeks to the day from seeing my GP, and that 2 weeks included Easter. The clinic is very efficient and every member of staff I met was excellent, from the receptionist, the radiographers, nurse and doctor. The service is streamlined - mammogram, ultrasound, biopsy and examination all in under 3 hours. Very impressive. And being told my lump was nothing sinister was the icing on the cake
