"You all make a difference"

About: Solihull Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I just wanted to praise our breast care nurses and team at Solihull, I have received the very best care and support anyone could ever wish for and I know I'm not alone.

I was diagnosed July 2014 had my mastectomy in the November, thankfully it all went well, and after being advised of the next steps and again supported by all the team, the next part of our journey happened on new years eve 2015 last week.

I have had my reconstructive surgery, we have seen the nurses again today to get checked over and as usual were so lovely, cheerful having a laugh with us, we are so lucky to have you all.

Thank you all so much, you make all the difference.
