Taken to consultant. On my return l had been moved to an other room No toiletries or towels as promised cold bathroom. Horrendous night.

Having undergone a painless colonoscopy, without sedation, last Thursday 17th October, I want to thank all the Endoscopy team, the Recovery unit, and the Pre Assessment team, for making it such a tolerable experience !! If anyone, reading this, is due for a colonoscopy soon themselves, DEFINITELY GO FOR IT - I found it literally a walk in the park and now feel a bit daft, continually putting it off in the past for so long !! Thank you St. Richards - all of us locally are very lucky to have such a great hospital !
I recently required an operation for breast cancer. My consultant Mr Odofin and all the staff involved were extremely caring, kind and understanding. Giving me all the information required for my operation and follow on treatment. I could not have wished for better treatment.
I was taken here by ambulance with a very fast heart rate and pain in my chest. The A & E doctors managed to stabilise this and I was admitted to the Acute Coronary Ward as I needed to have a defibrillator fitted. From the moment I arrived in A & E to when I was discharged six days later, I received excellent care from all of the staff and cannot fault this hospital.
