"Radio therapy for prostate cancer"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

Just to say thanks for the excellent service and support I received recently from the Radiology department over 6 weeks of daily treatment for prostate cancer.

From pre treatment onwards, I was made to feel comfortable with all aspects of the procedures involved. Throughout the treatment I was seen regularly for a review. I have nothing but praise for the whole team, often working under pressure. Out of all the appointments, I think only 2 ran late which is amazing and I didn't mind anyway!

Thanks to you all at the hospital and to the NHS, which we are so lucky to have.

Kind Regards,
