I was very unsure about attending for bowel screening as I had not had any problems and felt it would be embarrassing and painful. I do however feel we should take expert advice to keep ourselves well. I was very impressed by the sensitivity of the staff and felt that they tried to support me throughout my visit. They explained the procedure well and although a little uncomfortable it was easily bearable for the duration of the test. I felt that my privacy and dignity were supported throughout. I was shown areas of diverticular that were found and given a leaflet about increasing fibre in my diet to prevent problems in the future. The experience was much better than I had anticipated due to the excellent care provided by the staff.
