What I liked
My treatment was of the highest standard. The hospital ward was very clean and the staff were helpful. I was admitted for breast surgery having been accepted on a medical trial whereby radiation is administered during the operation. This has speeded my recovery as I do not have to travel to and from hospital on a daily basis for radiotherapy treatment.
What could be improved
The only improvement I would suggest is that nurses remember not to take blood pressure on the arm where lympth glands have been removed. I had to remind nurses about this and I only knew because I had read about it in some breast cancer article.
