I attended Day Surgery today for a colonoscopy - not a procedure that I relished however the team I met today put me at my ease and made an invasive procedure as dignified as it could be. From the admin staff, nurse Lynn who admitted me and Dr MacDonald, Fiona and Dot the nurses, I owe you a big thank you. It was over so quickly thankfully. I was looked after by nurse Sharon after the procedure and every staff member acted with so much care and compassion, my nerves were allayed. I have had no ill effects.
Thank you to the entire team.One little bit of constructive feedback - . I was given conflicting advice with the bowel prep. The Moviprep leaflet gives conflicting information to the NHS Lanarkshire leaflet by informing the person to have a light lunch the day before whereas the NHS L leaflet advises 24 hours before the person can only have clear fluids - no food. There is a lot to take in pre procedure and I think this confusion should be rectified. I trust this will be looked at.
Thanks for everything
