"Xray is more than just pictures"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I have been down to the xray department several times during my stay on ward F6 to have drains and stents inserted into my liver. I can say that from the very first visit to xray I have been treated with the utmost respect dignity and kindness. The doctors technicians and nursing staff have made every appointment as stress free and comfortable as possible by including me in all decisions about my care through to adjusting my pillow to make me more comfortable. I am a very active independent person and have found this loss of independence difficult at times but being able to chat , laugh and sometimes cry with the nurses and tell them about my life has helped more than they could imagine. I am home now and reflecting on my hospital stay and feel that these experiences stand out to me and want other patients to know so that it may help them feel less anxious if they need the same kind of treatment I had. Thank you to my consultant and their team of wonderful nursing staff and technicians
