Today I attended for a gastroscope under the 2 week rule. I was nervous but immediately put at ease. I was listened to with empathy re my concerns and not rushed and looked after with tender care. I opted for the throat spray rather than sedation. At all times I was reassured and felt in control for what turned out to be a pain free and stress free procedure. I took their advice to concentrate on my breathing and not panic. It worked well and the procedure was over v quickly. I can't praise the staff highly enough.
