Here's what our past patients think about Gamma Knife
Love from L and M
Jan 2017 .
However, my thanks go to the team that fixed the frame – that initially would have seemed to be the most worrying part. In fact it was a ‘’walk in the park’’ and certainly no worse than many simple dental processes! Thank you to all of the radiographers and their support during the MRI and the Gamma knife processes – in both of those I was close to falling asleep, I was so relaxed.
Thank you to the member of staff for her care and support in the ward both before and after the procedure (we regret that we did not manage to get to her recommended curry house afterwards as we were both a little tired and emotional after the long day).
Our over-riding impressions of the facilities and of the staff is of ‘’excellence’’, ‘’professionalism’’ and ‘’caring’’. Many people like to take a swipe at the NHS but our experience at the Royal Hallamshire certainly showed us a facility and team at the top of their game. Thank you.
I consider myself very lucky to have been able to receive stereotactic treatment. I am happy that my pre-treatment symptoms are already diminishing, of course this is all due to the combination of Individuals' skills acting as a team.
The atmosphere in the department was calm, well organised and efficient. Despite the nature of the procedure, at no time did i feel really apprehensive about what was happening. You really are a credit to our NHS.
I was so impressed by the high standard of the organisation of the work to be done, and also the kindness shown to me by complete strangers
From my first visit to the facility, I have been treated with the utmost consideration and what may potentially have been a daunting experience was lightened by your professinalism, disapline and friendly approach.
The whole experience for me was all new, but I shall remember it all in a kindly way, it was a real pleasure to meet you all.
A Big thank you to everyone on the Gamma Knife Team who gave help and such kindness to Mum when she was treated last weekYOU ARE ALL STARS!
happening during my treatment
I would Just like to comment on the care and treatment I received from your clinic.
From my initial cosultation to my dischage from the clinic last week, I would just like to thank all concerned, without exception everyone and I mean everyone,were so good, all very courteous,helpful, friendly, informative and above all I got the impression I was in the care of some very dedicated, professional people.
We hear every day via the media of some horrendous things within the NHS, which no doubt some are true, but I have to speak from my own experience, and I could not fault anything or anyone.
So thanks again to one and all.
I would be most grateful if you could make my comments known.
I would like to thank my Consultant, the radiographers, physics staff, the office, the MRI team, the Radiologist and nurse who performed my angiogram, and also the nurses and staff of the ward I stayed on. So sorry I can't remember all of your names but on the removal of my glasses after the fitting of the frame I couldn't see so well!
I would like to say everyone of you were so polite, kind and caring which helped me through this procedure, explaining everything along the way which made the fear of the unknown completely bearable.
The Radiographers jokes also lightened the day. The fitting of the frame wasn't as bad as anticipated so I would say don't watch You Tube!
For someone coming from Surrey to be referred to Sheffield never ever having been there and not knowing the Hallamshire Hospital, I give you all a Gold Star. You were amazing and treated me like a person not a number.
Thank you again for making my stay a comfortable one.
You made a very nervous patient so at ease by your bright yet highly professional skill.
Thank you and may you long continue with your wonderful service
