"Fast and efficient"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital / General surgery

(as a relative),

My husband was referred by our local GP for a Sigmoidoscopy at the fast track clinic, Scunthorpe General, because of rectal bleeding. Internal haemhorroids were found so it was decided he would be sent for a Colonoscopy for further investigation to check that there was no other reasons for the bleed.

Within a day of the first procedure he received a phone call at home to say that he was to attend the Endoscopy Clinic for the Colonoscopy which was to be in 5 days.. Because it was a weekend and no post the Detox mixture to be used 24 hours prior to the procedure was delivered to him at home in Crowle, by a member of the staff from the Endoscopy Department.

Luckily the outcome/results were positive. Positive too was the way everything went so smoothly. Can't praise the referral and all departments and staff involved enough. Wonderful prompt NHS Service. Thank you.

Hi Sarah Mainprize

Thank you for your response, I am a great believer in praising the good and saying thank you. Too many people find the negative about the service given in hospitals and very easily complain but forget to say thank you when things are positive and go well,
