"Admitted for ocular cancer treatment"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Ophthalmology

On the 4th and 5th of october i was admitted for treatment for cancer of the eye. From the minute i arrived and met the staff i was very impressed.The consultant i met immeadeately put me at rest and kept me informed at all parts of the treatment and was very positive which helped greatly to putting my mind at rest.Your nursing staff are very caring and helpful and especially the sister nurse who it was a pleasure to meet and i am greatful for having them look after me as they are very chirpy and upbeat and cares greatly for people under their care.Even the radiotherapy team were brilliant and they did an excellent job ferrying me from place to place keeping me informed and in the loop at all stages. You have a brilliant team there and i knew i was getting the best of care wherever i went in this hospital.If any management read this please pass on my thanks to everyone.Many thanks for the care and going back for checks isnt feared now because of your staff.
