"Excellent care for breast surgery"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital / Breast surgery

(as the patient),

I would like to thank Mr Basu, Ms Francis, Ms Waters and her Secretary for their care and support, together with the excellent caring nursing team on Ward 408, who looked after me in October when I underwent surgery for DCIS and reconstructive surgery.

Not forgetting Rosie the Physio who has been so supportive and helpful in getting me back on the road to recovery.

At what was a scary and worrying time, everyone was there to help and make the process as pain free as possible. Thank you to you all, you are a great team.

Sorry not forgetting the lovely breast care nurses, who give so much support and are there to advise when you have a little wobble. Great service and excellent facilities.
