Very fast diagnosis and treatment

I found a breast lump last Monday and the GP referred me the same day to the VCPC clinic. The appointment letter arrived the next morning for an appointment 6 days later. I was seen on time on the day, diagnosed with a cyst and had it drained, and was out within an hour. The staff were all courteous, kind and empathic. I know what organisational effort and clinical resources are needed to provide such a first class service and wanted to recognise that

Fibroadenoma surgery

I visited the Theatre Admissions Unit to have a fibroadenoma removed. I was very impressed with the care I received throughout the day. The TAU is very efficient and well organised. Everyone made me feel at ease and I appreciated being kept informed about when my operation would be. A very big thank you to the surgeon for a neat scar, anaesthetist for keeping my asthma well controlled and the nurses and theatre staff for looking after me!

Breast Clinic Appointment

I was really pleased with my appointment today at the breast clinic. I was referred due to family history and I had found a lump. The whole experience was faultless. It is a hard time when you find a lump in your breast but all the staff were professional and quick, I expected to be sat around for around 3 hours waiting for visits to several departments but this was not the case. I arrived at 10-45 and was out by just after 12.
Luckily it was a happy outcome!!
Thanks to all staff.

A satisfied patient

After being recalled from a routine mammogram in October 2013 it was discovered I needed surgery for breast cancer. The treatment I received from mammogram to discharge was second to none. I felt totally at ease and fully informed every step of the way. My advise to anyone finding themselves in the same position is, trust in the staff they are there for you and will help you through this worrying time with compassion and professionalism. Thanks for everything - a very satisfied patient

Breast Screening Clinic - Excellent

I would just like to say thank you to the excellent staff in the RHH Breast Screening Service. I accompanied my mother on her visit for a routine Mammogram, the radiographer was so lovely with her, putting her at ease and taking into account her other physical disabilities.

A very positive and confidence building experience.

What I liked

I recently accompanied my 88 year old aunt to be fitted with a prosthesis following a mastectomy last year. From the initial phone call to the appointment itself the service was excellent. The Support worker we saw was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. She took considerable trouble to find a prosthesis that my Aunt was happy with. The Support Worker also offered advice about suitable bra styles, offered her several to try on and gave us all the information we needed to order them.The room we were seen in was welcoming and the whole process was a very positive one.

What could have been improved

It would have been convenient to have been able to purchase suitable bras at the hospital but I appreciate that this would probably require more space to store the stock than is available.

So impressed by, and grateful to, the Royal Hallamshire Hospital

What I liked

If finding a lump in my breast just before Christmas was a little worrying; the subsequent diagnosis and treatment should have been terrifying . . .
However, thanks to the excellent staff involved in my care, the experience has been entirely manageable.
I have felt safe and well cared for and have absolute confidence in every member of the multidisciplinary team - the receptionist staff, radiology staff, the surgical team, anaesthetist and all those wonderful nurses - not just my breast care nurse but everyone I met at - preop clinic, on TAU and in theatre . I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and professionalism.
