What I liked
I attended for a Sigmoidoscopy on 11/4/2011, and have to say that the staff were,extremely good ,they were polite, sympathetic, profesional,and very pleasant. And were more than happy to give me any information I asked for.
What could be improved
I did not like the way I was asked to wait in the gents waiting room, following a enema, I had to dash to the toilet,clutching my plastic bag of personal belongings,which although I had been suplied with a large well fitting surgical gown, it was still a embarasing situation. and I would like to see this point being acted upon.
Is there not some way The recovery area could be utilised, At least you could get changed and prepared for the procedure,and then wait behind the curtains if so desired.
