About: The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

(as the patient),

What I liked

My name is Debbie Ryan and i have recently completed chemotherapy and radiotherapy as part of my treatment for breast cancer.

I have been treated by Clatterbridge staff, both at Southport hospital for my chemo therapy and at Clatterbridge itself for my radiotherapy.

I found this to be an excellent service all round.

Staff were helpful, kind, courteous, informative, approachable, knowledgable and supportive.

Nobody wants to hear that they have cancer, i certainly didn't but the care etc that i have received has been second to none. the NHS at it's best and Clatterbridge staff have made my 'journey' a positive 'journey'.

I would just like to say a massive thankyou to everybody involved in my care, the nurses, doctors, radiographers as well as the volunteers, the clerical staff and the domestic staff.

With the utmost respect i hope that i do not see any of you again, not in the way that we met anyway....but if we do i know that i will be looked after.

Thankyou again Debbie.
