"Good support from Macmillan Palliative Care Team"

About: City Hospital campus / Oncology End of life care / Macmillan specialist palliative care team St Andrew's Hospice

(as the patient),

I was referred to Kevin Moore of the Macmillan Palliative Care Team by District Nurse Chris Love. I have "Sezary Syndrome".

Without his caring, informative and friendly advice and assistance, I would not have been able to complete and return the Government Benefit claim forms, and return them without much delay and within the time limits.

I received my initial chemotherapy at Nottingham City Hospital at the beginning of October 2012, and Kevin made his first visit to see me at the end of October after my second batch of chemotherapy, and after the various government forms had been received.

He has since visited me twice and put his considerable expertise to good use.

Many thanks to Kevin and the Macmillan Palliative Care Team at both St. Andrews Hospice and the APB pont office in Grimsby.
