What I liked
The Doctor worked at the level of cause of disease and as a result the interventions are effective. The Oncology Dept at my Hospital immediately noticed a positive response to my treatments because at the RFH, I was treated at the level of emotion, spirit and mind as well as physical. The meaning of my disease was discussed and this context was an immediate boost to my healing. The Doctor works at the level of healing and thus the prescriptions work at a deep level!
The fresh, rejuvenating, non clinical atmosphere (vibrant plants, lots of light) were a wonderful change from the clinical atmosphere of the Oncology department and again I looked forward to these appointments as they had a positive context during my chemo and radiotherapy.
Thank you everybody
What could be improved
Sometimes the administration is not smooth. Individuals at adminstrative level do not always reflect the ethos and values of the hospital in their manner of dealing with patients.
Pharmacy staff excellent and not included in this comment
Homeoepathy within NHS is often measured in cost terms. I declare that due to my visits to RFH and treatments, for the full duration of my Oncology treatments (18 months) I did not once have to visit my GP. Is that a saving on the NHS? Ministers of Government and Treasury please note!
