"The 4 colonoscopy adventures at R Free"

About: Royal Free Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

First one had to be stopped --- "Excessive bleeding " --- because of error at blood clinic.

2. patient, ready to go, was told at 5h30 pm that there were no bed available, prior to the op the following day. Tough.

3. patient promoted to CCTV. A month later, still no results.

4. patient told that because CCTV has revealed a possible problem, endoscopy to come. Patient has lost patience and confidence on equal measure. Tried to

phone endoscopy. Gave up after 55 mins. Still no results. Any suggestions?
