I felt that the girl, that very first time, that did it, didn't really appreciate that this was my first time for this. I know these girls are turning people over, one every ten minutes and to notice which ones that it is their first is probably difficult. But just that one time I felt, I didn't know what was expected of me so I didn't know how to stand or how to hold my arm or that sort of thing. I'm an expert at it now [laughs].
Did she explain it at all or did you...?
It, a wee bit of manhandling. A little bit of the move... you know sort of just moving me around to seek the machine. Which she's doing, as I say every ten minutes, but I think just on that first day, a little talking before you do it would be useful.
I think the people who are going for the, it is their first time, should have a red star with their name or something, when they're being passed in to whoever's doing it. After all she's only receiving a list of people, they don't have faces and she may, I mean she probably did say, "Is this your first time? Oh right." You know, but I think they need a wee bit of extra handling to get used to what it's all about. And the machine's an odd machine, I'm sure you've seen one, maybe you've had a mammogram but it's an odd sort of machine. It's not like an x-ray machine and I mean maybe people, unlike me, wouldn't even have seen an x-ray machine. It's an odd way you've to stand and move and turn and that could be explained to the first, on the first visit.
