"Dr Stacey's Gastroentorology Clinic, Royal South Hants Hospital, Southampton"

About: Royal South Hants Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 1998 and was put under the care of the Gastroentorology clinic at the Royal South Hants hospital in Southampton.

I have always found them very helpful and caring.

An example is I suffered a flare-up of UC in February that I could not control by the usual medication that I have on repeat prescription. I therefore phoned Dr Stacey's clinic and was given an apointment for the following day. Dr Stacey then examined me and prescribed a course of steroid tablets, (the first time I have been given them). Within three hours of starting the course I noticed an improvement in the symptoms and within four weeks I was back in remission.

I think that this is a fantastic service from Dr Stacey, (who has always answered any questions I have), and his department. To be seen within 24 hours of telephoning the hospital is superb and being given the correct medication to control the illness is amazing.

10 out of 10, thank you.
