"Treatment was 10/10"

About: Castle Hill Hospital / Breast surgery

(as the patient),

I attended Castle Hill Hospital for a right mastectomy. There were no worst bits about my care. I would not change anything but the car park, should have a high rise park for hospital staff. It's hard work to find space when you have an appointment mid day. At the beginning of January I had a pre-assessment, MRI, mastectomy. I was in hospital for four days, I had no pain, the treatment was 10/10. Room 10/10, cannot find any faults. Then radiotherapy in Feb 2009 for fifteen days not sat/sundays. All over in six weeks. Now check ups every three months and now I have them every 6 months. My consultant Mr Mahapatra 11/10, I cannot praise him enough, plus his team. I have had no pain from day 1 to a year later. Thank you NHS.
