"MacMillan Windmill Suite - excellent cancer care"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I have just been given the all clear from breast cancer after 5 years of excellent care and treatment by the team at the MacMillan suite. Everyone I had contact with was pleasant, helpful and caring.

My doctor took time to explain my treatment options early on, at each review visit my doctor took time to explain things and listen to me, I never felt rushed, and my doctor always seemed to remember me personally.

This is the NHS at its best. Thank you.
