"At 81, I felt they cared about me and my skin cancer"

About: Nottinghamshire County Teaching PCT / Keyworth surgical dermatology service

(as the patient),

Five weeks ago I had a small operation for skin cancer at the health centre in Keyworth.

Unfortunately blood clots occurred a few hours after the small operation which meant a return to the centre. Dr Shoff who carried out the operation coud not have been more caring and for a lady of 81 it was great to be able to feel here was person who really cared.

It has meant a trip twice a week over the last period to have the wound dressed with great care from the nursing staff and visits from Dr Shoff when possible, while having new dressings.

I am delighted to say all is now well after my visit yesterday.
