"Having a Barium Enema"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

I had the above procedure today at QEQM and could not praise the staff highly enough, I was very nervous and they put me at ease and were so lovely. The procedure does not hurt but does feel a bit strange so do not worry if you have to have one. I give the staff 110% for being so great, they treat you with respect and dignity and kindness and help you not to feel so nervous, so a big thank you to all in the Medical Imaging Department
