Unsung hero - cleaner

Hear from our patients

I want to make a special mention of the cleaners in the oncology day unit; I always see the same one and because my treatment requires full days, often three days straight, I get to see him in action a lot. He is meticulous, works fast and always with a little smile showing that he cares about his work.
