"Efficient care for my unexplained weight loss"

About: Brighton and Hove City PCT Royal Sussex County Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I lost a lot of weight within 1 month.

I saw my GP without any problems (apart from mine) and he arranged a number of tests to find the cause. Some of these tests were at the PolyClinic which gives a first class service. The most recent test was a gastroscopy, once again everything went smoothly and the doctor allayed my fears of cancer.

There was a follow-up appointment made for me to see the consultant gastroenterologist. He is a charming man and very thorough. He even took the trouble to phone the doctor who I am due to see about my thyroid, to arrange some treatment prior to my appointment in a week or so.

All in all I have no complaints. Well...not now I'm feeling better!
