About: Mount Vernon Cancer Centre

What I liked

I was first diagnosed with cancer sep 2009 where I was referred to mount vernon, at this time we decided to do surgery so i didnt need any further treatment as this time.

However my cancer returned sep 2010, i had surgery first and was referred back to mount vernon to discuss treatment. I am to under go chemoradiation.

All I can say is that at such a freightening time in my life I have been treated fantastically from my consultant at watford, my nurse specialist to my clinical oncologist and his team, all of the staff who have been with me during my scans.

They are all truely amazing people, and it takes a special kind of person to do this type of job.

Thank you so much for making things much easier for me. If there was an award I could give you all I would because you all truely deserve it.

A massive thanks to you all.

What could be improved

Waiting in clinic to bee seen can be a bit of a nightmare but to be honest its to be expected as itis a busy department and there are a lot of people there for very serious illnesses.

Anything else?

Just thanks again xxxx
