"Colonoscopy Examination"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

I was met at reception by a very kind nurse who introduced themselves by name and asked what I liked to be called.

The nurse led me to a private room in which to get changed into a hospital gown and modesty shorts (What a brilliant idea) the nurse then explained the procedure and asked if I had any questions, at all times the nurse was very respectful and pleasant.

I was late led into the examination room and the three staff in there did everything possible to put me at my ease.

I must say they were very caring in the way they carried out the exam even talking to me as a distraction technique, I can't say enough good about them.

Clearly they enjoy their job and it shows it was a very happy department.

There was no need to take any of the pain relief that was offered as the procedure was carried out carefully by the doctor pain free.

I was then taken into recovery and well looked after.

The staff were all brilliant.

Well done!
