About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Following the awful news that I had breast cancer, my breast care nurse took over and made my husband and I feel as though I was the only person in the world to have breast cancer and they are with me throughout my journey. I attended the Treatment Centres for my various appontments as well as Woodlands breast care cantre. The staff are all very warm and welcoming. I had my operation in the Procedure Unit agin all the staff were very careing. The Unit could not be faulted.

What could be improved

The fact that the Procedure Unit closes on a Friday and you have to go to another ward where possibly as has been found the staff do not know about sorting the patients drains etc.

Anything else?

I did have the missfortune of my denture being thrown down the sleus but the cost was bourne by Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

All I can say is that everyone that I have had dealings with have been wonderful and still are.
