(as the patient),

What I liked

I had to attend the breast assessment clinic and would just like to say I was very impressed with the efficiency of the team of nurses radiographers and doctors that looked after me .My whole visit lasted about 2 hours and i was kept informed at every stage what was happening,what tests were being taken and what they were for. My nurse was lovely and very reassuring. She made, what was, a quite daunting experience into something much easier to cope with. please pass my thanks on to the team for a job they do very well.

What could be improved
