"Benefit of bowel screening"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I was picked up under the bowel screening programme at the time I felt extremely healthy and showed no symptoms. To say the response was fast efficient ,respectful land sensitive is to under estimate Kettering's response. I must have represented one of their biggest challenges in so much as I was scared confused and certainly not relishing any form of engagement with an unknown Hospital. The level of resources that where made available surprised all my friends from MRI to CT and ultra sound. Most significant where the staff I witness the dedication and sensitivity of staff first hand be it comforting patients in the early hours or understanding our individual hang ups. At each stage the treatments where clearly explained and sensitively administered. This may seem anti over the top response but be assured it is honest and given as a small way of giving something however small back to people who cared
