"Flexi Sigmoidoscopy"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I attended the endoscopy unit for a flexible sigmoidoscopy a few days ago. To say that I was nervous is an understatement! Without exception, the staff were wonderful, kind, reassuring and put my mind at ease. I cannot praise the staff in this unit highly enough. The care I received was exceptional. Having disabilities, I needed extra help. I was made to feel that nothing was too much trouble, all that mattered was my comfort and wellbeing.

A credit to KGH and to the NHS, thank you for the wonderful level of care that I received.
