"Leongatha Hospital day procedure, colonoscopy"

About: Leongatha Memorial Hospital

(as the patient),

I had been to Leongatha Hospital 12 months prior and because of the informative, personable, quality of care and support received from every single person I was in contact with I have returned for my next 12 monthly colonoscopy. So long as this is a procedure I required, this is where I will come.

From the moment I enter until the point I leave I am blanketed with attention and provided with awareness and knowledge of everything that will occur, is occurring and has occurred, thankyou all 🙏

Recently was my second visit to the Leongatha Hospital for a colonoscopy and both day procedures went smoothly without any issues of any sort, inclusive of pre admission, admission and discharge.  All of the staff I engaged with during pre admission to  discharge today explained everything in detail and answered any questions quickly and with detail.  Everyone involved with my day procedure of a colonoscopy was caring, thoughtful, attentive, knowledgeable and punctual.  I was put so at ease that it felt like a day out visiting people I knew, thankyou all, I very much appreciate all you do and boy do each of you do it well, together.
