"Extremely satisfied,"

About: Torbay Hospital

What I liked

I am 91,and have bladder cancer. I had two turbt procedures last year, and four weeks daily radiotherapy, but was never treated in any way as though I was not "worth it" because of my age. I was treated kindly and although of course it cannot be known what the future holds for me, I feel that all departments from Urology to Oncology have and are doing everything they can for me. The course of radiotherapy was made as pleasant as possible by all the staff involved, and I am very grateful.

What could be improved

From my point of view, cannot think of anything

Anything else?

Travelling to the hospital every weekday for four weeks for me was quite an effort, but would have been impossi ble if I had to travel further each day. I am struggling in many ways, including being registered blind and with other problems associated with my age.
