About: Chase Farm Hospital

What I liked


What could be improved

A surgeon who was able to cut and sew neatly. You'd think that would be a necessity but this is evidently not the case at the Chase Farm

Anything else?

If you are considering surgery for breast cancer at Chase Farm, I would urge you to reconsider. The surgery I had was carried out with such little skill that I will need plastic surgery at some stage to try and rectify some of the damage that has been done. I have now transferred hospital and my new surgeons and nurses are horrified at how my surgery was carried out. I am in the process of complaining about the Chase Farm surgeon. No other woman should have to go through what I've endured, nor hear a nurse tell her that she has been 'really cut up'.
