About: East Surrey Hospital / General surgery

Want to say a big thankyou to all of the team in the endoscopy unit, i recently had a colonoscopy and they was all absolutely lovely to me. I was very nervous/scared and a little embarressed! i am especially scared when it comes to needles and when they had trouble putting a cannula in for the sedative i normally would of had a breakdown but they held my hand and made it so much easier! They treated me with care, compassion and dignity. Thankyou.
