About: Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital

I want to thank the Radiation Oncology team at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH) for their wonderful care of my spouse. From the first meeting with the consultant, the team has delivered a consistently high level of treatment and care. At each stage, my spouse has been given the opportunity they need to ask questions and understand their care so that they can cooperate as an active participant, both  in the treatment process and the recovery journey afterwards.

The positive rapport that my spouse's main consultant built in that first meeting has been followed up by a handful of positive interactions with registrars who seem to have been inducted into the same positive care culture.

The nursing, radiotherapy, dietetics and speech therapy staff helped maintain  positive morale throughout my spouse's gruelling treatment, and provided timely information, clinical observations, treatment guidance and follow-up. The treatment successfully eradicated my spouse's tumour, for which we are unspeakably grateful. Their approach to treatment exemplifies everything I could hope for from a health service - compassionate, patient-centred care coupled with a high level of skill and expertise. Thank you.
