"My Cancer Treatment"

About: Broomfield Hospital

Since my diagnosis of Stage 4 breast cancer in August I have met some wonderful people working in this hospital.

In the Breast Centre Doctor and two other Oncologists have treated me with dignity, kindness and, where needed, a sense of humour.

All the nursing staff have been extremely kind, supportive and informative.

Yesterday I met the phlebotomist, who kept me laughing, in the style of Dr Hunter 'Patch' Adams, the American Clown doctor. They also managed to take a blood sample quickly and painlessly when many have often struggled to find a vein in the past.

I am confident that I have a team working with me, providing an excellent standard of care.

Please ensure that my comments are conveyed to the people mentioned.

Response from Broomfield Hospital

I will certainly pass on your lovely feedback to all the teams, and can guess which phlebotomist made you laugh. Best wishes, Jonathan - Patient Experience
