"Excellent Bowel Cancer Screening Programme at KGH!"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I attended KGH 'Bowel Screening Programme for 55 year olds' and was very pleased with the efficient, professional and slick service provided.

Even though the Endoscopy Department was extremely busy it was also very orderly and obvious all the staff understood their roles perfectly and were very well trained, thereby making the service run smoothly and effectively, while explaining everything and ensuring patient wellbeing, comfort and care.

I would recommend anyone called up to have this screening to attend as apart from saving lives, you will be treated with respect and dignity by a very caring professional team.

My test was normal, only took a few minutes and I had the results given to me there and then.

Excellent service Thank you KGH
