"Colonoscopy- Day Procedures Unit"

About: Solihull Hospital

I was given this appointment for a colonoscopy only a month or so after seeing the consultant. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were also going to perform the procedure and greeted me warmly.

All the staff were outstandingly polite and friendly for what can be a slightly embarrassing procedure for the patient. Everything was well explained and I have no hesitation in reassuring a friend due to have the same procedure that he will be well looked after.
