"Excellent care/Excellent service"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Aug 2014 and the care that I received from Gate 22 by the nursing staff and doctors was beyond excellent, I was kept up to date about operations, if I had any problems whilst recovering at home the breast care nurses were only ever a phone call away. In total I had to have 2 operations and again the staff on Gate 40 were excellent as well as both the surgical teams, so I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to each and everyone of you. I know that I've had to wait for more than hour for some of my appointments in clinic but that is down to the nature of what type of outpatients is at Gate 22 and the nurses and the doctors will answer any questions you may have and hopefully put your mind at ease as being diagnosed with cancer is one of the most frightening things to be told, so if people could sometimes look at the bigger picture and see that there are other people in the same situation as yourself. We are very lucky to have a FREE health service and people are quick to complain but not to give praise where it's due.
