"No fault with the people I dealt with, would..."

About: Fairfield General Hospital

What I liked

I thought my Doctor was very nice, approachable, friendly and informative.

The xray department were great, the blood nurse was even better, lay me down so I wouldn't faint, and also no bruising!

Brlliant all round!

What could be improved

The only thing wrong, and it's nothing against the doctor, was that so much information was given about my Fibromyalgia diagnosis, that it was very difficult to take in. I had phone call this morning advising me I had an MRI scan on this coming Monday, I didn't even remember the doctor mentioning this.

Maybe a copy of what happened on the day would be good to take home with us, it's difficult to tell your employer when you can't remember much?

Anything else?
