"I attended Queen Mary's for ..."
Posted via NHS Choices
What I liked
I attended Queen Mary's for a colonoscopy yesterday, and was very worried as I'd previously had a bad experience with inadequate sedation.
The staff in the Day Care centre were extremely understanding and reassured me that there should be no pain, and were as good as their word. I experienced not the slightest discomfort - the whole procedure was performed quickly and expertly, and was totally pain-free. I shall be far more confident in the future if I need to go through this procedure again.
What could be improved
The final exit ramp in the drive out of the hospital is far too steep, and caused an enormous jolt to my car's suspension, even at 5mph. Although it is claimed to be within legal limits, I fear that the Trust will sooner or later face claims for damage to vehicles if something is not done about it.
