"My wife has just had a colonoscopy ..."

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My wife has just had a colonoscopy and the time from initial consultation to completion was superb. The treatment was excellent. The staff were wonderful. We have nothing but praise for the whole experience.

I hope somebody passes on these comments and not just the negative comments that people make.

What could be improved


Anything else?

I don't have much experience of the NHS hospital service but in recent years I or my wife have used Lymington, Christchurch, Southampton and Bournemouth hospitals and have had no reason to complain. Maybe more people such as us should be canvassed to get a more positive message to both the public and NHS staff members.

I do have criticisms of the NHS and it's management, especially relating to budget control and GP services but the overiding impression is a good one. I wish more publicity was given to the great benefits of the NHS.
