"Professional bowel cancer screening"

About: East Surrey Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I attended yesterday for a screening.

From start to finish I was impressed with the approach of the staff. From the friendly smile of the nurse on the reception desk through the screening, to the post screening feedback, the medical staff were never less than thoroughly professional, informative and caring.

Special mention to the specialist screening practitioner - Rachel - who is superb at her job, in my view.

I'd urge other men to get their screening done - the staff are really very good.
