"pleased with endoscopy at wellington road, newport"

About: Telford and Wrekin PCT Telford referral and quality service (TRAQS)

(as the patient),

My 3 previous endoscopies were carried out with sedation. I was unaware until I received the actual appointment that this time it would be without sedation. I was very apprehensive, but I managed alright. I was pleased with the treatment I received at Wellington road clinic.

Thank you for taking the time to give TRAQS feedback following your recent referral.

Wellington Road Endoscopy Clinic offers an endoscopy appointment in a Community setting and the waiting time is usually quicker than waiting for an appointment at a hospital. Unfortunately, as you state they are unable to provide sedation for the procedure.

However, you were able to tolerate the procedure without the sedation.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am sure your comments will prove useful to other patients who are waiting to undergo the same procedure.
