"Endoscopy Team Work"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I had a Colonoscopy examination yesterday and was worried about the possible indignity, of the procedure.

The doctor and their team were sensitive, caring and in my view exceptionally Professional and ensured that my wellbeing and my dignity were a priority.

The feedback given by the staff member was thorough and carefully explained, in detail without any hint of lack of time.

The NHS is always under attack but in my limited experience of the NHS I can honestly say the service was first class and all of the Staff, through to the Clinicians were extremely capable and kind.

From my initial consultation to having the procedure was one week!!! Apart from the really horrible "Gunge" you have to drink to flush your system 2 days prior to the colonoscopy the experience was outstanding.

Thank you Endoscopy team.,

Dear Mr Giles

Thank you for your very kind words which have been passed onto the staff. We do agree that the preparation for the procedure is not a pleasant one but we are glad to read that everything else went so smoothly.

With best wishes
