Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Unit

Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire

Having an endoscopy (for example a gastroscopy, colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy) can be a

frightening experience for many people. We hope that patients get adequate information about their
test, that they understand what it involves and why it is being done and that they are treated well
when they visit the unit.

Your answers to these questions would help us decide if we can improve our endoscopy service
and how to best do this. A few minutes of your time would be very much appreciated.

We are asking that you do not sign these forms (i.e. they are anonymous), so that your answers can
be as honest as possible.
Please return the questionnaire to the reception desk or by mail, using the attached self-addressed
