"Excellent service by breast care nurses"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Oncology unit

(as the patient),

From the shock of my diagnosis of breast cancer, through the various parts of my treatment to date, surgery and chemotherapy, I have been supported at every stage by the breast care nurses, mostly Susan.

They make sure that I understand everything that is said to me and if needed they will explain it in a different way so that I understand. They have co-ordinated a seamless journey so far, from radiology to surgery etc and I honestly could not have done this without them.

I have nothing negative to say about this service and staff members.
