"Bowel Cancer Screening"

About: Bishop Auckland Hospital

I had a routine bowel screening on Friday 6 Feb at 2.30pm. I can't say it was a walk in the park but I wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful staff in the unit.

From the nurse who booked me in to the team in the treatement room (Ward 20 I think?) to the nurse who booked me out - they all treated me with great friendliness and respect.

I especially would like to theank the nurse (I assume they were a nurse) who talked to me throughout the procedure and who was funny, charming and very reassuring.

Fatntastic NHS staff, please pass on my thanks.
