"Treatment and after care at Queen Alexandra breast..."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I am an 81 year old woman who was treated for breast cancer at the unit in QA on January the 2nd 2015. I had my operation on that that date and had an overnight stay in ward D8. I can't praise the surgeon who performed my operation,the anaesthetist,and all the other staff concerned enough. My after surgery care on ward D8 was also both professional and kind. I must state that the ward was very short staffed but the staff gave 100 per cent in care and consideration . I couldn't have had better care anywhere . Thank you all !
