"My daughter is being treated here ..."

About: University College Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My daughter is being treated here for cancer. Although she was very seriously ill when diagnosed, the doctors and nurses have fought extremely hard for her and now she is doing well. Her excellent and kind oncologist is one of the best in the business and we are very grateful to them and their totally committed team.

What could be improved

Very little. The only probelm is that when a staff member is absent, there is not enough cover.

Anything else?

An excellent department (oncology) where the staff from the receptionists up to the consultants treat you with kindness and respect and offer you the best care possible. thank you to all of them.

Response from University College Hospital

Delighted that you are happy with the daughter that your care is receiving. If you could pass on the name of the oncologist, we can answer your specific question about cover when s/he is on leave.
