I had a gastroscopy today at this Hospital, staff are faultless, explained everything in clear detail and offered choices, i.e. with/without sedation.

Due to equipment shortage (not their fault) was offered the latest gastroscopy by nasal passage and although the procedure is a little alarming and quite uncomfortable was totally reassured by the manner of all the staff involved.

I did wait quite a while for procedure to be done but felt at the end of the procedure that I had made correct decision.

I was also told the result by the surgeon carrying out the procedure on the day which was very comforting.
