About: The East Riding Community Hospital / Medical oncology

(as a relative),

The oncology unit were absolutely brilliant with my mum. They always took time out to talk to me about what was going on. Graham was so caring such a good listener. He answered all my questions and when it came to mum going into the hospice in York I knew it was close to the end for her. Graham even let me share a few tears with him. I just want to say thanks to everyone in the oncology unit for all you did for mum. You are all brilliant. Xx
