"chemo department"

About: Southend Hospital

I have just finished chemotherapy at southend hospital and the staff there made it so easy for me. I had no idea what to expect and was quite frightened by what was going to happen. They are an amazing bunch of woman and men, always smiling and nothing is too much trouble, they made me laugh every week and i truely didnt feel like i was going for treatment every week because thats not how they make you feel. Even the person serving tea was amazing, making sure you and anyone you have with you has a drink, sandwich and snacks at all times and always with a smile. I cannot praise this department enough and if the rest of this hospital is half as good as them then they should be very proud.
