"Elmstead Day Unit"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I had a colonoscopy in the Elmstead Unit

I would like to say from the initial screening appointment at Broomfield hospital to the phone call today to check how am feeling.

Everyone I met and spoke with treated me with the utmost care and respect.

As for the examination itself again everything was explained and

I feel this atmosphere created by the team members helped with reducing any stress I was feeling.

I’m sure that the reason

I only needed entonox was a result of the care and attention shown to me.
