"Thank you for Stoke Mandeville"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Went to have a colonoscopy and gastroscopy yesterday. I would like to say thank you to every single nurse, staff I have met starting with the receptionist of the main entrance, who helped me tremendously with getting my bearings.

The staff at the reception of Day Unit Procedures, very welcoming. They explained to me all the procedures in an excellent way. Thank you for your kindness and care.

I was led afterwards to have the procedures and the two nurses there were very helpful. I do not remember the rest except that I felt some pain at a certain point. I only remembered when they woke me up and brought me some tea and biscuits.

I was then told the results of my investigation by a very nice person.
