Dr Gemma Barnard
14th November 2017
Gemma is a fantastic support to teenagers with cancer. She is brilliant at speaking clearly and honestly in terms they can understand without condescension. She has endless patience and will repeat information as much as necessary while the patient is coming to terms with their situation. She empowers patients to become involved in decision-making about their care and she takes a 360 degree view of a situation which is not confined to the purely physical. She can be highly commended for working also with a patient's psychological, emotional and social needs. Gemma has a relaxed and friendly style even when it is obvious how busy her workload often is. We consider ourselves fortunate to be in her care and know that we are in safe hands.
