"Colonoscopy unit"

About: Torbay Hospital

Fantastic nurses and doctors. I visited the unit very scared about the procedure and that I might have bowel cancer. The procedure although painful at time I had a sedative and gas to help and a nurse holding my hand and making sure I was fine. It made an unpleasant test very bearable The doctor then gave me the good news that all was normal before I left the room.
