"Guy - My treatment in the Haematology Department"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

Following many visits to Haematology clinic and Haematology Day ward I was diagnosed with Leukaemia, and was a patient in Haematology Ward 30 on 3 separate occasions to receive chemotherapy treatment between May and September 2014. The care I received throughout the entire process was simply superb, the dedication and professionalism of the staff at all levels was simply outstanding. Whenever I thanked any of the staff I was informed that there was no need as they said 'it was their job to care for me'. Without question ALL of the staff including Day Ward and Clinic stated that they loved working on the Haematology unit. The consultant and team are to be congratulated for their unstinted level of care, dedication, attention to detail and professionalism, which I believe is down to the consultant's leadership. There was never an issue over appointments or waiting times, and a big thank you to the consultant and team for giving me my life back.
