"Treatment for breast cancer"

About: City Hospital campus / Nottingham Breast Institute

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer having surgery and radiotherapy.

The staff were knowledgable, friendly and empathetic. However the radiotherapy could've been quicker, as I had it 3 months after surgery.
