I was sent by my GP to the Ambulatory Care Unit last Thursday with a HB of 80, and told I may need a blood transfusion. As soon as I arrived on the unit, I was very much looked after - the staff couldn't have been kinder or more attentive. I had various tests following which I saw the Dr. who gave me the choice of either a blood transfusion, or an infusion of iron, the latter of which I decided on.
I had the choice of tea, coffee, orange juice, water, biscuits, sandwiches, yoghourt etc. , as did my husband who had accompanied me, throughout the day. I am to have a further infusion of iron on Saturday.
The unit is fantastic, and my care was second to none.
