"Breast cancer"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

In March 2015 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.I was fully informed at all times by my Consultant breast surgeon what my treatment options were and decided to have a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. This took place within 3 weeks on M1ward and I was only in hospital overnight. The nursing care on the ward was excellent. After further tests I was recommended to have a course of Chemotherapy. Fortunately I was able to have this at the Churchill Unit at the RBH. The chemo nurses,nursing staff and volunteer helpers here all provided excellent care in a relaxed environment and meeting other patients here going through the same treatment helped me to cope at a difficult time. I would like to thank all the staff involved in my treatment - Consultant breast surgeon, breast care nurses, chemo nurses who always treated me as an individual and not just another patient. I was shown care, kindness and reassurance at all times and always felt I was being given the best treatment available. I would not hesitate in recommending Bolton Breast Unit to anyone needing treatment.
