Being told you have a melanoma & then finding out it had spread to my lymph nodes is quite upsetting. My first meeting with one of the skin specialist nurses was quite informative with so much empathy both to me, my husband & my daughter's. Sam (the nurse) told us everything without holding anything back but without making me feel scared, she answered any questions we all asked in turn & had the time to answer without rushing. Since then I have spoken or seen most of the nurses on the team, they are all very helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them.
I have had a couple of operations now the last one being pretty major. All the ward staff, theatre staff, dressings clinic staff, Bernie in Occupational Health, Oncology Department staff & Consultants Dr Board & Dr Prasad have been most caring & helpful. Also now the staff on the Chemo Ward.
In fact everybody who works or helps in the hospital have the same attitude by helping with any queries and making you feel very much cared for. I couldn't ask for better treatment& care.
