About: Burnley General Hospital

I was admitted 20th may for a hysteroscopy. This was a simple procedure, and after only suffered mild period pains for 24 hours. The staff who looked after me put me at ease and were very attentive. After half and hour I enjoyed a nice cuppa and sandwich. Thank you to the anaesthetist who put my mind at ease as I do get sick after. Thank you to all the staff for taking good care of me. You all do a wonderful job. Many thanks to the doctor who did the procedure with care. Please if you are having an hysteroscopy do not worry.
