"Exceptional care and attention for me as a patient"

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme sent me a kit for Bowel Cancer Screening. I simply forgot to address this matter.

Hampton Wick Surgery then sent me a letter reminding me that bowel cancer is one of the most commonest cancers in the UK. This letter had the desired effect!! I immediately sent my samples for screening tests and within 2 weeks I had the results: all fine I am pleased to say. This Screening Programme is an amazingly efficient service and it is free!! And the service provided by Hampton Wick Surgery was at no cost to me as a patient- what a great patient service. Hampton Wick Surgery has a portfolio of brilliant doctors and my family and I are extraordinary fortunate to have the benefit of their expertise and professional care and attention. Hampton Wick Surgery has saved me the anguish and discomfort of bowel cancer at least for some considerable time and saved the NHS of any such associated avoidable costs.
