"Prostate cancer care at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

I was diagnosed and then treated for prostate cancer at RSH starting late October 2012 and still ongoing. I have been seen by Urology and Oncology, had a biopsy, prostatectomy and radiotherapy and MRI and CT Scans and attended the hospital many times. I am very happy with the hospital particularly the clinical and caring side of it which is of course the important part. There have been a few easily sorted administrative issues but nothing to worry about and some of the older buildings seem a bit worn and sad looking. The treatment and care given to me before during and after surgery was faultless no doubt leading to the easy recovery I had. I also have to mention the staff, medical and support in the Lingen Davies centre who have been fantastic during my Radiotherapy always supportive and very caring. The Radiotherapy team were wonderful.

Response from Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

Dear Andrew It really is a privilege to provide you with care that inspires such kind and gracious comments, particularly given all that you have been through. We are tremendously grateful to you for sharing this, and also to the astonishing and selfless fundraisers and donors who have helped to provide the much improved environment in the Lingen Davies Centre. The Lingen Davies Charity itself will celebrate 35 years next year, and the support they have generated has transformed the services we are able to provide in the county. The team responsible for the Lingen Davies Centre development were award-winners in our annual Trust Awards last month but if you know individual members of staff who truly represent the values at the heart of the NHS then please do consider nominating them for the Chairman's Award (http://www.sath.nhs.uk/about-us/chairmansaward.aspx) Thanks for taking the time and trouble to get in touch.
