"Dr and team"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

My breast cancer diagnosis came out of nowhere. In the space of just 3 hours I'd had an examination, a mammogram, ultrasound, biopsy and a final consultation plus new appointment.

The specialist and their team were incredible, both on that shocking day and throughout my treatment. Direct with their information, caring, thoughtful, funny, patient and at all times treating me with dignity and respect.

Apart from the decor and possibly a glass of champagne I can't see how private treatment could possibly be better....

Sincere and heartfelt thanks to the specialist and their lovely team. QEQM at all times over the weeks felt like a very happy environment to be in. Bravo NHS!!
