"Endoscopy, Gastroscopy / Colonoscopy."

About: Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust

I had these procedures done in your hospital and rely felt humiliated I have had these procedures done before and had sedation this time they said they were giving it to me but I can assure you they were not interested if I as sedated or not, I felt so humiliated in keep asking to have some sedation because what they say they were giving me was not working, I suffer with my heart and could feel it hurting but I was reluctant to mention this to these people because I felt they were not listening to anything I was saying, I know they were not interested in what they were doing because the doctor spilt a lot of the sedation on my hand at the beginning. I can honestly say I would not have this procedure done at this hospital ever again.
