Additional information

Patient and nurse

It was incredibly efficient, everyone was really kind and friendly, which makes so much difference. They introduced themselves and explained what was to happen.


I can't speak highly enough of the care and treatment I have received at Charing Cross Hospital. Diagnosed with breast cancer, at every stage I was given empathetic support, with time to ask questions and discuss options. I was in good hands.
