"A nasty scare made easy"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

Being diagnosed with breast cancer gave me quite a scare, but all the staff from beginning to end of the treatment have been absolutely wonderful.

Starting in the Peggy Wood Breast Cancer centre I was given the verdict with professionalism and empathy and at each stage was told what the treatment would be and asked if I was happy to go ahead.

I was also asked if I had any questions and given lots of information, so felt in complete control.

A big thank you to all the lovely staff at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells.

I have just finished 15 days of radiotherapy and feel I am now on the exit road to complete recovery,
