BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

08-04-2016
I knew that it was the best equipment that I could possibly access; I knew the team were the best that I could have because Prof Chan would not stand for anyone who was not up to the mark! The environment was pleasant, quiet and unstressful. I feel very lucky, although I have had breast cancer, that my treatment took place in the best environment possible. It has definitely helped with my recovery.
