Well Done’, For A Change.

 

Last week I got a referral to the regional hospital for x-rays, not for an accident but for diagnostic purposes. It is no secret how much I dislike hospitals.....but who does like them......and after all the bad press the health service had been getting, I was positively dreading it.

 

Still, better to get it over with, and Monday morning seemed a good choice with no surgery referrals being made over the weekend. It’s not far, thirty minutes drive away so reluctantly I got on with it.

 

I was expecting a long wait, frustrated and harried staff......and I got a totally pleasant surprise. The receptionist was pleasant, smiling and helpful, and I was in the waiting room no longer than ten minutes before I was called in to the x-ray room.

 

The radiographers were relaxed and patient and although it wasn’t a particularly pleasant experience I was expecting much, much worse. Eight x-rays later, I was told I could go. I’d have liked some feed-back on the x-rays themselves but that was never going to happen. Anyway, twenty minutes inside a hospital can’t be bad!

 

I just wanted to give the health service and the staff a thumbs up this time. It doesn’t happen very often but today I have to say, ‘Well done!’
