I had a bilateral Mastectomy with immediate DIEP reconstruction at QVH on the 21st January 2015. Everybody made my visit perfect at, what was, probably the strangest time in my 40 years of life. My consultant put me at ease with his warm smile and approach, the nurses were all lovely and attentive...they make you feel like you are the only one they are caring for while you are there. I was a very shy girl with regards to showing off certain parts of my body but these Nurses, Consultants and Doctors made this side of treatment easy to cope with. Thank you East Grinstead for being there when I needed you...The NHS and its staff are all amazing! x
