"Endoscopy procedures"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

I had to undergo 2 procedures, a gastroscopy and a colonoscopy. I was absolutely dreading the procedures, however the staff were such a fantastic team, so kind and caring, and they made the whole process go smoothly from admission to discharge. The endoscopist was initially delayed in starting due to travelling over from Burnley Hospital, however, this was explained to me, and the procedure wasn't delayed for too long.
