"Breast care unit"

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 weeks ago and had a mastectomy on 2nd October 2015.

The care and professional support which I have received by my Consultant and team especially the Lead Cancer Nurse have been excellent.

My husband and I been involved in my care and treatment decisions throughout this rather difficult time.

When I had surgery the care and treatment once again was excellent from all staff from my admission into the Access Lounge, theatre staff and Ward 30 I was treated with dignity and respect and fully supported throughout.

My treatment has still some way to go as I will need further treatment but given my experience to date I feel positive in moving forward and getting well.

Many thanks once again to all the most wonderful staff to whom I am most sincerely grateful
