From my initial diagnosis of Prostate cancer in October 2021 to removal of my Prostate by robotic surgery in March 2022, I have nothing but praise for Ben’s care, compassion and genuine kindness to me. At a difficult time for both my wife and I Ben and his staff were marvellous, nothing was too much trouble for them, every question was answered with empathy and understanding. Let’s face it cancer is a word that nobody wants to hear, a journey nobody wants to undertake, suddenly life is turned upside down in an uncertain and precarious way. I personally found that the information from Ben, the clinic nurses, the fact sheets and leaflets were all of immense help to me in making my decision to have surgery. Once my decision was made everything seemed to slot into place, I was extremely impressed with how quickly Ben arranged my operation and consequently I’m relieved and pleased with no regrets that I had surgery. Thank you Ben for all your care, kindness and skill, but most of all for being a thoroughly nice gentleman, the NHS is extremely fortunate to have you. Very best wishes Maurice.

Initial consultation for elevated PSA. Spent copious amount of time explaining and educating us (my medical doctor spouse attended consultation) on PSA scores and the significance of gland size being a factor in that score. He provided thorough debrief on recent MRI results from Addenbrooke and put us at ease vouching for their reputation of excellence whose radiologist he knew by name. Mr Lamb willingly listened to all our questions, concerns, and inputs. The clinic was very busy and he was too but that did not deter him from taking all the time we needed.
