About: Sale Hospital / Oncology Sale Hospital / Surgery/Theatre

I have arrived late to this site but wish to share my experiences . Early in 2015 I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent the operation to remove the tumour which was done successfully . Chemotherapy was part of the ongoing treatment to which I later developed serious complications and involved several visits and stays in and out of hospital . 

During this distressing time I cannot overstate the care and attention I received from the nursing, medical, office and catering staff in this hospital. I now have ongoing scans and checks and receive the same professionalism as I did in 2015. 
We in Sale and district are extremely fortunate to have such a facility and accompanying staff .
