"My treatment for skin cancer"

About: Lister Hospital

Anything else?

Since July 2010 I have been a patient at the Dept.of Plastic Surgery and Dept.of Oncology receiving treatment fo rmultiple Non Melanoma skin cancers with SCC of my pinna, temple,back and right leg.This involved excisions in out patient, skin graft in theatre and 3 weeks radio therapy at Mount Vernon. At the present time all appears to be going well

Being a patient over such a long period has meant that I have been involed with many hospital personnell over a wide range of disciplinesand deparments.My impression throughout is that overall the enviroment is a caring one. I am most impressed

I would like to place on record my appreciation and grateful thanks not only for the surgical treatment but also for the kindness and consideration shown to me by the nursing and administration staff
