"I was diagnosed with kidney cancer ..."

About: St James's University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in late June 2008, age 14.

8 months of chemo, a great oncologist, along with other staff, including a fantastic surgeon, and I'm just as good as ever now.

The staff were brilliant throughout, on Ward 5, 10, and 15, where I stayed.

What could be improved

Nothing, it was great (:

Thank you for taking the time to share (on the NHS Choices website) your recent experience at St James's Hospital. I was pleased to learn you thought the staff were brilliant and that nothing could be improved.

We shall pass your comments on to the Patient Relations Manager at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
