"Good experience"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Anything else?

I had a colonoscopy on Saturday 9th March at the Alexandra day unit. From the start of the of the process following my referral all the staff I met or had contact with were helpful, friendly and professional. This ranges from the receptionist who called me to check the date of the appointment and rearrange to a more suitable date, to the consultant who carried out the procedure.

I was impressed with the facilities, I did not have to wait long and the procedure was carried out with minimal fuss.

My thanks to all those involved.
