About: Bassetlaw Hospital

What I liked

The colonoscopy is of course quite an uncomfortable procedure, being 17 doesn't make it any better. I struggled during the examination with the pain (may I note this is not because of anything being done wrong), I was treated extremely well by the nurses and doctor who reassured me when I was in pain and kept telling me I was doing very well. I was treated with respect and dignity. I cannot praise the staff there enough, they made my short stay more bearable. Many thanks to them.
