"I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2014..."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2014 and from that moment right through my treatment I was treated with dignity and respect. From the consultant to the breast care nurses, operating staff, radiotherapists and all other staff too numerous to mention. Nothing was too much trouble and all questions were answered honestly and with kindness and consideration, making the whole experience so much easier than it might have been. Every problem along the way seemed to have a solution and I was impressed by the professionalism and expertise of everyone involved in my care. Dignity, respect, gentle kindness, thoughtfulness, what more could I ask?
