About: Heartlands Hospital

Since 1955 I have had systoscopys carried out in US. Australia and other hospitals in the UK.On the10/01/2014I attended the clinic @ ward 10 where I was seen by by a locom registrar, a locum surgeon and a systoscopy was carried out I was most impressed by the way he carried out the operation for the first time in my life it was performed without without any pain or discomfort what so ever and I was able to remain completely dry on my drive home and what is more the staff are so friendly that one is relaxed to start. Although I hate the drive and the parking at Heartlands the treatment makes it all worth while.16 years ago I was admitted with incurable lung cancer but I am here to day none the worse off except a shortness of breath I am very grateful to Heartlands and its staff.
