"Excellent service"

About: Castle Hill Hospital

I am a female and 33. i had a small buety brown spot on my cheek and it grew gradually over a year to size of a pea I had it checked at the doctors in September and was refered to hull royal in the October. The consultant refered me straight to the operating room and it was removed to send it for a sample there and then I was left with a big scar of 4 stitches and was horrified and in shock as i didn't expect a procedure the same day as my appointment I was assured that it would soon heal quickly and amazingly it did. i had an appointment in the December and unfortunatly the results were not good and was booked in a few weeks later for another operation to remove more again I'm healing well and the scar is very neat I am one of the lucky ones and also very lucky to be treated so quick on the nhs. I really can't praise my consultant and all the lovely staff enough :)
