About: Ashford Hospital

What I liked

Again I was terribly nervous about having a Barium Enema, never had to have anything like it before. The preparation was awful and compered with the actual x-ray was the worse part.

The test it'self was better than I'd expected and both the nurse and radiologist communicated not just what was going to happen but what was happening as it did happen. This made me more relaxed than I'd ever expected to be.

Although not a pleasant test to have to have when I left the hospital after the very efficient staff had done their work I couldn't help have a little grin about how worried I'd been and how silly it now seemed.

What could be improved

Not a thing
