Patient comments about the Haematology Day Unit

“I really enjoy coming to the unit the staff are very much like family to me. The nurses are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. It’s so relaxed that I often fall asleep.’’

 

‘‘The first time I came to the unit I was wondering what was going to happen but I soon relaxed as the staff were so friendly. They are always so pleasant, comforting and helpful - if you want anything you just have to ask. I couldn’t wish for anything better.’’

 

‘‘The unit is very clean and very good. On my first visit the nurses went through everything with me, I was given leaflets and felt fully informed. The nurses are welcoming and really know what they are doing’’
