"Staff were extremely kind"

About: Colchester General Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

I attended the Elmstead Day Unit in the middle of September, for a colonoscopy after being referred from BCSP.

I would like to say thank you to all the staff I saw, as they were so so nice to me. I was a bit anxious about the procedure to say the least, but I was informed every step of the way as to what would happen, they were extremely kind and I couldn't have asked for better treatment.

So, massive thanks, very much appreciated!
