My treatment and care before, during and after for breast cancer has been excellent. I have just a couple of suggestions for City Hospital.
On the day of my operation, I, and another patient, had to walk from our ward, through the treatment centre to the breast cancer centre in our dressing gowns and slippers. I thought this is extremely embarrassing and humiliating walking past other people who are just visiting the hospital and are obviously in their everyday clothes. We were taken back to the ward in wheelchairs. Why couldn't we be taken down in them? And whoever designed the treatment centre should be ashamed at not realising they hadn't accounted for this. I think there should be a private corridor or something.
The other thing would be how about trying to fit more appointments into one day? Going one day for biopsies and then back another just for blood test is ridiculous. If the different apartments could get their heads together and cut down the travelling for patients would be good. Thank you.
