"Great Caring Nurses"

About: Southend Hospital / Breast surgery

Anything else?

I was unfortunate to need to have a lump removed from my breast 8 weeks after losing my sister to breast cancer.

The nurses were all very understanding and caring. I was even moved to a side room so that I was able to have some solitude which was much needed getting my head around the irony of my situation.

Not only did the nurses look after my every need medically they went the extra mile to help me emotionally.

Thank you so much
