The Clinic, Park Street

Home of Mr Briggs and his team. It looks more like a posh London Hotel than a Clinic but then again, it is in Grosvenor Square!

Open MRI Centre, Harley Street, London

A lovely place to have an MRI scan, music playing whilst you’re lying in the scanner, very pleasant people all helpful and polite. As it should be!

Another MRI centre in Harley Street, not quite so nice as the Open MRI Centre, but the nurse was lovely and was very helpful, specially with the winding stairs down to the MRI scanner room. Not a good idea if you have a mobility problem though! 🙁
Check out the MRI Link for more information.

The P.E.T. Centre, Harley Street, London

A gorgeous building, quite modern inside which was a surprise! Extremely helpful and informative staff who put you at your ease straight away. Nice chillout music and aromatherapy before you go into the PET scanner machine.

I’ve spent a lot of time in this hospital having various tests, scans and inpatient treatment (both in Kathleen Ferrier Ward [Cancer] and Lord Athlone Ward [General Surgery]. Lots of very caring people all working extremely hard and not getting many thanks for it, so thank you!

The Radiotherapy Clinic, London

Part of the Middlesex Hospital, but a different entrance! All my Reviews are held here and also I see Dr Farnham and Jan here too. I know it very well now and feel quite at home here, an odd thing to say as I’ve always avoided hospitals whenever I could but it’s so true now.

Woking Nuffield, Surrey

It was here that I had an initial diagnosis of a fracture in my leg. If only huh! I was then referred to Mr Briggs who then found out I had a Large B Cell Primary Bone Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to give it it’s full title. A slight difference here. To think Mr Newman told me it was nothing nasty. The old saying of “Trust me I’m a Doctor” just wasn’t true there was it…… :-(((((
Check out the “Pages” section > hospitals > woking to find the one I went to!

St Peters Hospital, Surrey

Several visits to A&E (with attentive staff unlike another hospital we could mention!). I was also an inpatient here with my gallbladder problems and my operation done by Mr Bearne. A job very well done and I’ll always be thankful for. You all deserve all the stars!

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, Middlesex

We arrived here in the pouring rain and found our way to the right Department. A scary time as I was nervous about the needle biopsy specially as I was awake. A wonderful team put me at my ease and it all went fine. It was the result that was worse! I’ve been here three times now for needle biopsies, so not the best of memories to be honest. Two under local and one general – which was easier to cope with.
Check out the bone tumour page @ Clinical services > Clinical Units > Bone Tumour – very interesting!

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Bolsover Street, London

A new hospital to me, very busy! Very old, but quite beautiful around the walls and ceiling area with each room having a month on it and wonderfully painted. I see Mr Briggs and Dr Cassoni here and it’s belt and braces time now.

BUPA Hospital, Bushey

It was in this hospital I had my MRI scan instead of at Stanmore. It’s only a few minutes from Stanmore but costs a whole lot more!

Hampton Court

It seems only a short while ago when I was here although I can’t remember it very well. It was here (back then it was a hospital) that I was born on a cold December day not so very long ago…..

Alliance Imaging Centre, Bulstrode Place, London

A “state of the art” modern imaging centre just minutes from Mr Briggs and Harley Street. I had both legs MRI’d and x-rayed here (in the same machine unlike other places!). Brand new centre with helpful staff. A delight to be scanned here.
