"Attending the Endoscopy Unit for a Colonoscopy"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

I attended this Unit yesterday for a Colonoscopy. As you can appreciate I was very apprehensive and embarrassed about having this procedure done. As soon as I was collected from reception by a nurse who went through my medical history and explained the procedure to me, I felt so much more at ease. I would like to thank the doctor for his kindness and also to all the nursing staff that dealt with me. Thank you for the refreshments after the procedure and for explaining the Colonoscopy Report to me. This was one of the best experience I have had at this hospital. If anyone has to attend the Unit for a Colonoscopy I would like to say you need not worry because everybody is so kind.
