"The staff are always giving lots of information"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was very quickly diagnosed with cancer. The care I have so far received has been second to none. I was having daily radiotherapy and was on first name terms with all the staff. I am having an operation on Monday to remove the tumour. I feel confident about the procedure because the staff are always giving lots of information.
