"Fantastic Team at breast clinic stobhill"

About: Stobhill Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed in November 2015 with Breast Cancer. The support from the team at Stobhill was simply outstanding. I never normally write reviews (good or bad) but feel it's an in justice not too on this occasion. I was fortunate enough to have Mrs McLean as my surgeon and Lena as my breast cancer nurse. From the outset they were supportive, practical, professional and simply wonderful in terms of answering any of the many questions I had! From there I met Soohie, Vicky and Maxine .... I thought I had already had " the good bit" well let me say how again wonderful these folk are. I am blessed to have all these wonderful professionals working to help me get better. I don't work in the Health sector but in education but what I can say if I do half a good job with others as all of these wonderful people have done for me then I will be doing something right.

I read with interest all the bad press shot the NHS and cannot comment obviously on individual cases but I would say... Come and ask what it's like to be a patient in Breast Cancer Clinic at Stobhill because I'm sure others will agree with the excellent professional service offered by all!
