I would like to congratulate the team at the Fernhurst day care centre for the Macmillan award they have been given.

I received chemotherapy treatment from April this year and I also had several stays in the attached specialist ward on occasions and all the staff consultants, nurses, receptionists, and also not forgetting the domestic staff, could not have been kinder or more caring.

I count myself very fortunate not to have had to travel further afield for treatment to Portsmouth or perhaps further.

I never thought when I did a sponsored walk some years ago to help raise money for the centre I would one day have need of it myself.

Congratulations once again to the team at the Fernhurst Centre and many thanks to you all.
