"The lung cancer team should be ..."

About: Hillingdon Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

The lung cancer team should be proud of their care. They were all respectful, honest, supportive and thoroughly professional in their treatment of my brother who was a patient from July - December 2008. Their treatment of him was all and more that one could want and hope for from the n.h.s. It is also important to say that all the auxiliary ward staff were kind and thoughtful to the patients.

Anything else?

When my brother was actually on a hospital ward there were two instances when other very difficult and aggressive patients were intimidating. It is a sad part of our daily life now that nurses and doctors now have to worry about the safety of their patients even within the confines of the hospital. Our sympathies were as much for the staff (who responded quickly and calmly to contain the situation) as being concerned for our member of the family.
