"Due to having Prostate Cancer ..."

About: Chase Farm Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Due to having Prostate Cancer I am currently being seen by three hospitals and Chase Farm at first glance reminds me of Bletchley Park { WWII National Codes and Cipher Centre } as its spread out using old Nissen huts.

If you are a out-patient I would strongly advise printing out the map { from the web site } as you are going to need it as departments are scattered all over the place and you really need a GPS to work out how to get from A to B.

I have been going to Chase Farm for the past 16 months as a out-patient so I am well used to it by now.

I have been getting drug and hormone therapy and the treatment has been excellent.

I found the staff to be very cheerful and pleasant and the whole place to be clean.{ although with the age of the buildings it would be inpossible to keep it spotless }

They have a very helpful PALS Unit { Patient Advice and Liaison Service } who I was able to contact by e-mail and they sorted out the query within the hour { which is excellent service by any means }

What could be improved

Something really has to be done to improve the buildings as that lets it down the most.

Anything else?

Needs more money
