The woman who I had, (staff name) I believe, made me feel so at ease. I have a history of getting too scared to go through with my blood tests and this is the second time I’ve had her now and both times she has been amazing. She’s a real credit to the team of amazing nurses and doctors you have and I really feel like she has gone out of her way to make my experience as calm as possible. The results came back within 2 working days so couldn’t be happier. Thank you.
