My wife and I live in Devon .On Sunday 21/08/2016 we set off to visit family in Wendover. 5 hours after arriving my wife fell ill and was transported by ambulance to HighWycombe Hospital who where excellent in treating what turned out to be a seizure. Three hours later we where transferred to Sir John Radcliffe hospital in an emergency dash. Immediately my wife received the best possible treatment, first into the high dependency room ,then emergency surgery ,and into the emergency unit . For 15 days she received the most incredible treatment. I was allowed to visit at any time and was always treated with the utmost care and compassion . My wife has been diagnosed with a glioblastom multi former which is a terminal condition. All the team at JR have shown the most exemplary understanding and consideration to my family, my daughter and grand children flew over from Florida. As a husband of 48 years I am devastated but the help I received will never be forgotten... My wife was transferred back to Exeter on Monday of this week and already we have had the first meeting with the oncologist, and the fact that all the information from
Oxford was forwarded to Exeter meant all could start immediately. I have dealt with to many individuals to mention everyone by name suffice to say that
Sir John Radcliffe hospital is without the top of the Premier League of medicine.
