"Outstanding care for breast cancer in Sheffield and Rotherham"

About: Rotherham Hospital Weston Park Hospital

(as the patient),

A year ago I was diagnosed for the 2nd time with breast cancer. From start to finish the care was outstanding. I had to visit the breast screening dept on quite a few occasions. I was always treated with care and kindness.

The radiographers were very efficient and explained everything even though I had been through it before. I felt very confident that I would get the best treatment available.

I had to have chemo and radiotherapy at Weston Park who also were fantastic, I also had 4 operations in Rotherham and the doctors were all so caring I was given lots of information. I had visits at home from breast care nurses and district nurses and here I am one year later recovered and back at work all thanks to the staff at Rotherham and Sheffield.

Why are people always complaining about the NHS? I for one think we are very lucky to have such a great system. So thanks for all the care and well done on the outstanding care you gave me at Rotherham and Sheffield. I think the people who live in this area should count themselves very lucky at the standard and availability of specialist care we have.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience on this website. I am so pleased to read that your treatment has gone well and that you are now recovered back at work.

Please be assured that I have passed your wonderful feedback to the Superintendent Radiologist for the Breast Screening Unit and the Clinical Director for General Surgery. I have asked that they pass on your comments to the staff in the Breast Screening and Surgical departments.

Thank you once again for your comments.
