(as the patient),

One word Fantastic.

The only thing is the appointments. I’ve been sent to so many hospitals for the same thing.

They sent me to Dundee, which was a complete waste of time. I have been for alot of x-rays so many times. I luckily had the car so I could go.

I’ve got cancer, biopsy was done and it’s been fantastic, no pain, I was really surprised.

The toast and tea was great.

This is a great hospital. All friendly. The nurses are like my wee daughters. They put me at ease.

Treatments nearly finished, I was told after all these tests.

It was a nuisance going to different hospitals when one could do all the treatment.

Dear jagged309

Thank you for your post. I was touched by your comments about our staff and I will be sure to share your post with them. It was also good to read that your experience while having your biopsy was positive.

I was sorry to read that you had appointments that you felt had been uneccesary and I would be keen to look into this in more detail for you if you feel that would be helpful. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact me directly on 01592 643355 ext 20148.

I hope that you are recovering well following your biopsy and that you are looking forward to the end of your treatment.

Thanks again for sharing your experience with us.

Kind regards

Gill Ogden
