"the view from the rear end"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

This week I had a colonoscopy examination.The staff could not have been kinder.The environment could not have been more pleasant. The procedure was performed painlessly with due respect for the dignity of us all. I have been to Derby Royal on many occasions and have found the hospital to be efficient and caring. Derby Royal is a gem. The only downside ..the blood taking department is grossly overloaded and the car park is a nightmare,but the bits that matter are first class.
