"Variable care after a mastectomy at Royal Alexandra"

About: Royal Alexandra Hospital / Ear, Nose & Throat Royal Alexandra Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was in Royal Alexandra Hospital for mastectomy and reconstruction.

I was very scared, and really thought the care I received could have been a lot better. I found some, not all, of the nurses uncaring towards me. I was very vulnerable.

The surgeon and her team were excellent, as were most nurses in HDU but I had an awful experience in Ward 29. It didn't help that ward closes weekend. Though the care we had in ent. ward was amazing, especially has they had little knowledge of breast cancer care, they just cared!!
