Over three years ago I was belatedly diagnosed with bowl cancer and a T4 tumor- the cancer had spread. After a number of operations and chemotherapy I am still very much alive thanks to the skill of surgeons and oncologists. My treatment at the Lingen Davies Centre has always been top class, first rate dedicated professional treatment alongside real passionate empathy and understanding for the patient and their families. Every nurse that has treatedme in the chemotherapy day unit has helped me leave with a smile and a positive approach to dealing with the treatment. The oncologist I am fortunate to have, provides personal and real individual attention, listening and encouraging me through each aspect of treatment. Each time I have had to seek help during treatment the response has been exemplary, providing me with the best possible and including my family to reduce the anxiety for them too. I can't thank the whole team enough for their positive and supportive attitudes; consultants, doctors, nurses, all support staff including pharmacy, X-ray, lab technicians, cleaning, maintenance and the wonderful WiFi. Thank you
