"breast screening"

About: Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

I had a breast screening locally and it had a smear on it so I attended to Thomas Linacre Centre for a second scan. The nurses were very good and I found the doctor very helpful. I was put at ease and everyone was very reassuring and friendly.

My daughter suggested that they could be biscuits made available in the waiting room with the tea as it is a long wait for relatives
