After nearly 35 years working for the NHS I became a patient last August and was diagnosed with B Cell Lymphoma.
I was originally referred to ENT as I was losing my voice on a regular basis, Mr Houghton at the new Victoria quickly carried out an Endoscope and ruled out a throat issue, but he did identify a growth under my arm. This resulted in a referral to Ms Ward, who on my first appointment had a biopsy carried out and Lymphoma was confirmed, I was therefore transferred to Clinic P.
Within a matter of a 2 weeks I had a scan, which showed three active nodes and my first chemotherapy was arranged.
I cannot praise everyone at Clinic P enough for the standard of care I have received over the period from August through to April this year. Their approach from Consultant down through the Team right down to the Volunteer, who always made sure I had a sandwich I liked, is a role model many could learn from.
