In April of this year after an endoscopy I was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus. I was immediately put in the care of a Upper Gastro-intestinal & Unknown primary Cancer clinical nurse specialist. In no time at all she put the wheels in motion for my treatment. At every stage from chemo to my operation at Bournemouth she was always there making sure everything was in place and leaving me with a feeling of confidence in what lay ahead. In my opinion she goes over and above the call of duty! I have just been discharged from Bournemouth Hospital after an oesphagectomy operation which went very well, all arranged through Dorchester Hospital. You hear so many complaints about the NHS I just wanted to express my gratitude to you all at Dorchester for the treatment I received.
