"A faultless performance"

About: Heatherwood Hospital

Having been diagnosed with bladder cancer, and had the cancer removed, I attended Heatherwood on October 13th for a cystoscopy to check whether there had been any recurrence of the disease. My appointment was for 9:00am, the receptionist had my name on her chart ready for entry, a thorough check of name DOB etc and I was then seen by the lead nurse, again a check on my medical condition, was I on any medication etc everything explained in detail and I was ready for the off at 9:00am sharp.The urologist, who remembered me from past treatment was friendly and professional and the examination was without any pain or discomfort. Thankfully, the comment 'see you in a year's time' was the news I wanted to hear and I was walking out of the hospital at 9:15am. In summary, from start to finish a faultless performance, well done Heatherwood. George Spinks
