"Excellent care"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I can only describe the care I had following my diagnosis of breast cancer as 'outstanding'. The speed at which investigations and treatment were carried out definitely relieved some of the anxiety related to the diagnosis. At all times I was treat with such care and compassion from day one and throughout all the associated investigations and surgery. Everything was explained to me thoroughly and knowing a named breast care nurse was available by phone was reassuring. I couldn't fault a thing our NHS at it's finest!
