"Upper GI endoscopy!"

About: Worthing Hospital

Had an upper GI endoscopy at the hospital, this AM, they only downside was the wait in the department, but everything seemed to run smoothly. It was an unpleasant experience, but all the nurses made me feel at ease and provided me with the uppermost comfort, in what was otherwise an uncomfortable procedure. I opted for just the throat spray, and I would definitely employ this option, should I require further testing. Particular thanks to the nurses: admission, endoscopist, and supporting nurses. Overall, an experience made better by the friendly nature of the staff! :)
