"Endoscopy Dept"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

Anything else?

My husband had a colonoscopy today (16/12/13) at the Endoscopy Dept of Rochdale Infirmary. He was quite nervous because the one he had eight years ago at another hospital was very painful for him. He discussed his fears with the doctor who told him "If I hurt you I will be very annoyed with myself". Although my husband felt some sensation, there was absolutely no pain. A small polyp was found and removed and I was called into the recovery area where the results were carefully explained to us both and we were given a written report. Also without exception, all the nursing staff we encountered were extremely pleasant, helpful and smiling.
