"Could not ask for better care for my husband and I"

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / Clinical oncology Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust / Community physiotherapy

(as the patient),

I have been having physiotherapy treatment for problems in my lower back and this has been really good.

I have taking a fair amount of pain killers and morphine to manage the pain, I now take half of what I used to since having physiotherapy treatment. What Pete Swan has done for me is fantastic.

I should also like to add that my husband has suffered from cancer and has been treated at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where we could not have asked for better care. The whole Oncology team have been fantastic – their care, concern and treatment has been great. All the people are so supportive.
