"Can see why this is a centre of excellence"

About: Harefield Hospital

First ever visit for a coronary CT scan. Really impressed - from the first greeting by welcoming receptionist and the heart investigation that followed. Everyone at pains to put you at ease, to explain the process and make sure you understand. No rush or hurry, just very professional people doing a decent job.And at the end a great cup of tea in the refreshment pavilion run by Friends of the Harefield Hospital, instead of in some soulless and expensive costa coffee joint.
