"Medical Investigations Unit - Endoscopy Unit"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Incredibly helpful staff who seemed to be on top of their game with everything feeling as if it was running like clockwork. All medical procedures were explained in a way to make sure there was no doubt of what was happening, whilst I never felt patronised or talked down to. Overall there was a professional but still warm atmosphere to proceedings. The free refreshments consisted of a tea/coffee with toast or a small pack of about 3 biscuits. Both tea and biscuits were quality if somewhat limited due to the medical procedures undertaken. Therefore, not much to say really except, in conclusion: faultless health care provided and I have no quandary recommending this unit's services to others.
