"Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment"

About: St Bartholomew's Hospital / Breast surgery

(as the patient),

I have recently been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. This was all done at Barts Hospital and I wanted to share positive feedback on the top class service I received.

From porters, receptionists and nurses through to theatre nurses, radiographers, anesthetists, doctors and surgeons, I had nothing but wonderful and caring treatment.

Having breast cancer along with its diagnoses and treatment is not a good experience at all, but I can honestly say, that ALL the staff at Barts made the whole journey from beginning to end a very positive experience indeed.

There are so many people I want to thank, but I don’t know their names, however I have particularly good memories of the theatre nurses, the surgeons, the anesthetists, the receptionists in the radiology department and the radiographers themselves, so if any of you are reading this feedback, I want to say a great big THANK YOU to all of you.

I put my life in your hands and you all saved my life.
