"having a bronchoscopy"

About: Victoria Hospital / Respiratory Medicine

(as the patient),

I underwent a bronchoscopy at the Victoria Hospital. Kirkcaldy. I want to express my appreciation to all the staff who looked after me. Dr. Pickles, Barbara and Liena ( hope I have spelled it correctly) who carried out the test. At all times they explained what was happening and catered to my every need. They made what could have been a stressful procedure, reassuring, efficient and extremely professional. I was then handed over to the recovery team of Ashley, Liz and Julie. Thoroughly enjoyable experience rounded off with toast and coffee.

Thank you so much, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
