"Bowel Cancer Surgery and follow up"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Anything else?

I cannot state enough how happy I am to have been admitted to Bolton Hospital. From being admitted into casualty and within 24 hours diagnosed with bowel cancer. Right through from casualty, wards staff to the surgeon i was treated with compassion, dignity and kindness. I am still not totally out of the woods but my frequent checks keep me in touch and my mind at ease. I received life saving surgery at Bolton and no matter what concerns I have, i know I can always approach them. On a day to day basis i saw staff deal with willing and unwilling patients and always remained calm and considerate throughout. When i use to visit the doctors or hospitals I used to be so scared and panic would set in. Even though I was very poorly in Bolton and had to undergo 2 operations, I always feel a sense of calm when arriving. Massive thank you to everyone at Bolton Hospital, my Guardian Angels Susan x
