Because of Christie's being a specialist hospital
it feels like going into a family unit where everyone is the
same. You can talk freely to anyone. The staff deserve
to be praised for the work they do.
The next time I can't get a five star hotel room
in Manchester I will give the Christie a call. It was really that
good. The staff are the best, food was excellent, communication was
easy - everything was great.
It is a pleasure to attend a hospital where staff
have not been trained to avoid eye contact. The food was very good
and a stay in the Christie (apart from the obvious problems) is
like having a holiday.
Everyone was more than nice. I was called by my
name wherever I went so it made me feel like I was the only person
there. Very friendly staff, always with a smile because they knew
what you were going through.
I found all the staff friendly and informative.
This made my stay as relaxed as possible as I was concerned about
my condition. This also helped my family to cope.
