I attend once every two years for a gastroscopy and dread it as the day approaches. Once in the unit the anxiety is naturally still there but the treatment by all the staff without exception helps alleviate any major distress. On this occasion I have to single out two particular members of staff who helped me through what could have been a distressing session. The information given to me and being made to feel part of the whole process helped enormously. So. A big thank you to all the staff from start to finish. I know I will still feel anxious on the next occasion but I will remind myself of my experience today to reduce the butterflies.
