"I have personally never experienced any problem"

About: Lorn & Islands Hospital / Medical Oncology NHS Highland

(as the patient),

Two years ago I was diagnosed with bowel cancer and was successfully treated at the Lorn and Islands Hospital. I have also been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and am treated for this at the Lorn Medical Practice. I have no problems in getting appointments to be seen by my GP and have found that within the NHS where a need arises the need is met. The health service is coming under sustained attack and is criticized although I have personally never experienced any problem.
