"Positive experience!"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

Yesterday I attended the Gastroenterology department for an Endoscopy procedure. I was apprehensive ,but needed have worried. All the staff were amazing! Everthing was explained clearly and every effort made to put me at ease. I opted for an anesthetiser throat spray rather than a sedative. This was very effective, quick and this, plus the expertise of the staff, made the experience easier than expected. After being discharged, I was able to continue my day as normal. The only grumble I had was the difficulty in finding a parking space. If I were you, I would arrive well in advance of your appointment time, in case you have to queue to park!
