"Kindness from Endoscopy ward 1"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

With so many too eager to criticise I couldn't let my experience as an outpatient in the Endoscopy ward. From start to finish I was greeted with nothing with kind consideration and friendliness. EVERYONE, without exception, was a credit to their profession. I recognised a well practiced teamwork spirit. Thank you to you all for carefully explaining every stage of the procedures, before and after. You are all an enormous asset to the hospital. Again a very big thank you. I wouldn't expect any more from a five star hotel with the service I received.

You are not alone when you state how kind and caring the team are and how well they explain the procedures keeping patients informed about their treatment.

I will be delighted to share your comments with the team and I know they will appreciate them greatly.

Once again I thank you for sharing your experience and wish you well for the future
