"Wonderful care and treatment at the Sheldon Unit"

About: Good Hope Hospital

Anything else?

Dates Oct 2012 - on-going Can I please express our gratitude for the post- operative chemotherapy treatment administered at the Sheldon unit. My wife has received excellent on going treatment in the centre from the oncologist and his team. All of the staff involved doctors, nursing, phlebotomist and ancillary staff are caring, dedicated professionals. The chemotherapy regime has been very effective with minimal side effects. The clinic is stress free and runs efficiently. Reception, blood - testing , nursing including the specialist clinical nurse and the doctors are all so helpful and flexible. A team that works together meeting their patient’s needs. I realise my wife’s condition will always need on-going monitoring and managing. However thanks to all the special people at Good Hope she is experiencing a new lease of life which has exceeded our expectations and for which we are so grateful. Thank you so much A very grateful patient husband and family
