"Cannot fault"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. From the minute I received my diagnosis I was taken under the wing of true professionals not only medically but in every aspect of care. My specialist nurse was compassionate and efficient. My appointments were initially to find out if the cancer had spread. I had 2 scans and an examination and I was treated very well indeed. I had to have a radical hysterectomy and chemo radiotherapy and although it was a whirlwind everything was explained properly and I felt cared for and valued. From consultant to radiographers, reception, even the person that took my blood, everyone was kind and considerate and efficient. After my hysterectomy it came to light that I would need further treatment. I felt devastated and was on the ward. My nurse arranged for me to have the privacy of a side room as I came to terms with my situation. I was able to stay in that room which was a godsend. I'm now all clear and feel so grateful for my treatment from start to finish with the NHS and Leicester Royal Infirmary. Thankyou.
