"Your team saved my life!"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Oncology

(as the patient),

I underwent a bowel cancer operation at East Surrey Hospital. The Operation was carried out by Timothy Campbell-Smith. The team were fantastic! This was my 1st Operation during my 55 Year lifespan. I felt so blessed to be treated with such respect and dignity. I feel very strongly about how the NHS and how undervalued it is by both the Media and Government. Your team has saved my life and no matter what I write in words could never be enough to thank you all for the opportunity you've afforded me of being with my family! I will continue to have my voice heard in future support of East Surrey Hospital. Again a huge thank you to you as I class as 'Earth Angels! '
