My experience of the colonoscopy procedure itself and the staff involved was very positive -- they were helpful and considerate. Two minor adjustments to the experience could make things better: 1. The detailed 3-page form patients are asked to complete when signing in would be much easier to fill in if sent in advance. The detailed information on previous illnesses, medication and allergies would be much easier to access at home. It is not so easy to remember on the day. Sending the forms in advance would also speed up the booking-in process. 2. The addition of a coat hook on the back of the door of each of the patients' toilets would be most helpful. As it is there is nowhere to put coats/jackets which have been taken off.
