"Fantastic service"

About: York Hospital

I was diagnosed with cancer in the mouth at the end of December 2015, I was operated on at the beginning of January. The treatment I received and the attention was first class. Everyone involved from the Consultants team treated me with respect and kindness, I was given information on what was happening and what side effects I could expect. Since leaving hospital the level of care hasn't changed I see the dietician , speech therapist and Macmillan nurse on a regular basis and their willingness to help me through my ordeal is plain to see. I couldn't wish for better treatment and I am sure that my treatment couldn't be any better if I was a private patient. My thanks go to everyone including the team at St James Hospital in Leeds as they also helped me get through a quite unpleasant experience with care and kindness.
