"Endoscopy Day Ward"

About: South Tyneside District Hospital

I required a colonoscopy which was carried out yesterday afternoon by the doctor and his staff. I have nothing but praise for all those involved from the moment I arrived. I went in with no intention to be sedated, but found to my embarrassment that my pain tolerance was basically zero and I required this, yet the staff were exemplary in their efforts to keep me relaxed whilst still focusing on getting the procedure completed. Hopefully I will never have to have a repeat in the future, but should I do so, I know I will be in good hands. Thank you all once again. John Keith Leadbetaer
