About: Monklands District General Hospital / Endoscopy

(as the patient),

Today I was in for a Gastroscopy. I do not go out I have severe anxiety and suffer from panic attacks. I just want to say a big thank you to all the nurses on that ward. I took a panic attack and they couldnt have been nicer. The staff are lovely thank you so much for your help today. xx

Dear lynchy,

I’m so glad to hear you were able to overcome your anxieties to attend hospital for your procedure. It is really important to have investigations recommended by your doctor.

The staff know how important it is to make sure all patients get the information they need and that they feel supported before, during and after their procedure.

It will be my pleasure to share your feedback with the team in the Endoscopy Unit.

Best wishes, and many thanks
