I was misdiagnosed at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary last year, and had to have both breasts removed. I feel the level of care I received there was atrocious and I was transferred to Dr Grays some months later to see the oncologist and breast care lady.
The difference in the care was unbelievable and made a huge difference to me personally. The breast care nurse, Corrine, was just marvellous and has been ever since, as I had a few problems, too long to mention and I honestly would not have been here today if it was not for her help and understanding.
I was there again for a minor op a few weeks ago and again the care was marvellous. I would also like to mention the team that did the pre. op. assessment, Jean was one, not sure of the other's name but thank you to you one and all.
You were great. I have not one bad word to say about Dr Grays. I only wish I had been there at the start of all the mistakes made in Aberdeen.
