"My father's experience "

About: City Hospital campus / Urology

(as a relative),

My Dad was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2011. He spent a number of periods of time in the City Hospital in Nottingham receiving treatment.

I have nothing but praise for all the staff, especially the stoma nurses who ran the "bag for life" club as we called it and the team on Gervis Pearson ward who cared for Dad and our family during his last weeks.

Very difficult times on a ward with really ill patients but nothing was too much trouble; the nurses and health care assistants were there 24 hours a day 7 days a week to offer support to us all.

Thank you so much for everything you did to help us through.
