Consulted with Heather to discuss treatment options for PC and gain some assurance and advice on the decision she helped me make. To go forward to a procedure without any doubt that it is the right one is mentally invaluable and what ever the outcome there will be no regrets. Heather was , of course, highly knowledgeable but also so very open and easy to talk to- more like picking a pals brains over a pint in the pub! For those of us of a certain age with grim memories of distant, cold consultants Heather was a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend her for the assurance and comfort she gives whatever your decision.

She is very reassuring and explained the merits and demerits of the available treatments. She involved me in the process of discussion and making final decision regarding treatment. She is very pleasant and made me feel as a friend. I appreciate her good communication skills and depth knowledge.

She is ver knowledgable. She is very polite and courtesies and tries to explain. She is well renowned Clinical Oncologist. She has treated over 22,000 (Approx) cases with good results. My case was of prostate cancer and initially I was seen at Royal Free Hospital by Urological Surgeon. Who was sitting on my results for over 11 months and it turned to be advance prestige cancer. Later, I was referred to prof. Heather Payne by professor Roger Kirby. I was shared care with Pro. Christopher Eden (Urological Surgeon - He has operated over 11,00 cases with good results). I was treated and had good recovery and now approaching 11 years.

Professor Heather Payne If you are seeking the advice or treatment options for Prostate Cancer, or associated problems, please look no further than Professor Heather Payne. My first consultation followed previous unsuccessful treatments at a very worrying time when Prof. patiently explained how the disease had progressed and the current treatment options of either Radiotherapy or Radical Prostatectomy (RP) With her help I decided on RP and was handed over to a specialist surgeon, against her financial interests - not always commonplace in today's private medicine. Following the surgery, being left with some residual cancer spread, I was referred back to Prof. who diligently investigated and watched over the disease for a year or so before recommending a course of Radiotherapy which she specified brilliantly with the result of me now effectively being cancer free. Prof. Heather always conducted herself in a professional, caring and specialist manner, is certainly expert in the prostate cancer field and is backed up by an equally excellent team to the extent that when she was away on international duties any concerns of mine were relayed to Prof. and she would call me if appropriate. At 77 years of age I have met with more than my fair share of medical practitioners and my experience with Prof. must rank the most beneficial and helpful. It continues to be a pleasure to deal with a true medical professional who puts the patient's need first. My thanks to Professor Heather Payne.

Professor Payne has been my lifeline over the last 10 years plus, ever since I was referred to her after my PSA levels started to rise again following my initial prostatectomy. Since then she has treated me through a considerable number of recurrent outbreaks of my prostate cancer, always keeping on top of it and treating it proactively with the latest and most suitable treatments. She has genuine concern and sympathy as well as expertise and I couldn't recommend both her and the whole team at the Prostate Centre more highly .

I started seeing Professor Payne after having been diagnosed with Advanced Prostate Cancer. Throughout the treatment, she provided not only excellent medical advice, but, just as importantly, support and reassurance in copying with my disease. Her clinical knowledge and clear and open manner give me unlimited trust in her judgement and advice. Five years on, I am able to live my live fully, and feel so very grateful and lucky to have her as my oncologist.

I have been seeing Professor Payne for in excess of 5 years. I have been really impressed with the professionalism and it is an immensely comforting to feel that you are receiving the highest level of expertise and care from a someone who is clearly at the top of her profession. Professor Payne always has the time and patience to to explain matters carefully and clearly and is very thoughtful in how she sets the scene a. She is a very good communicator which is really important in my view. Finally, we have had some good fun along the way which always helps in these situations. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Professor Payne.

Professor Payne for the 2 years that i have been under her care has been inspirational to me i arrived with a PSA reading of 253 , she said that i should deal with this disease on a step by step basis and not to self diagnose , ignore the internet and if i had a question please talk with her This proved very good advice , our visits generally had some smiles and a few tears but i always walked out of my appointments feeling stronger than when i walked in i found she delivered news updates extremely clearly & concisely i have the highest of regards for Heather and would recommend her to anyone seeking professional advice

I have been a patient of Professor Payne's for the past four and a half years and have always found her to be very caring, attentive and inspiring confidence. She explains everything very clearly and if she says something will be done it is, such as referrals to other consultants and communications with my GP etc. She is very aware of whole person medicine.

My first meeting with Professor Payne was on the telephone. Nevertheless, within a very short time, I felt I had known her for ages! She was extremely easy to talk to, had a sense of humour and was very clear with her advice. Jonathan Carey

I owe my life to Professor Payne . When it was too late to operate , she took me under her wing, quickly , professionally and with great personal skill and understanding sorted out my Prostrate problems.
