    Mr Slade was excellent. His explanations and bedside manner were both caring and professional. He made the whole experience so much easier for me after having had a lot of medical treatment over the past two years I was dreading another procedure but I can honestly say he made it so easy and pain free.

    I wanted to say thank you to Richard and all of the other doctors and staff members that were involved in doing my operation. I was Stage 1 cancer and god willing he has cut it all out of my body. I have recently seen an oncologist and I do not need chemotherapy so I am over the moon. I cannot thank Richard enough for his and his team's efforst to rid me of my disease.

    I have recently undergone major surgery under the care of Mr Richard Slade and cannot praise him enough. What could have been a very traumatic experience was made that much easier to deal with due to his support, undoubted expertise and genuine care shown throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and he always had time to listen to any concerns. I have been given a new lease of life for which I cannot thank him enough. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Slade and his team.
