“It was just over 3 months ago that you carried out my prostatectomy. Of course, much has happened since then and you, and your colleagues, will now be totally absorbed in dealing with the current outbreak of Covid-19, for which the whole community thanks you. However, my little note comes to express my belated thanks and appreciation to you and all who helped, advised and cared for me through that difficult diagnosis of my prostate cancer to operation and through recovery. I probably should have written sooner to express my thanks but wished to wait until I could say with confidence that I feel almost back to my old self again and have resumed life as normal, as much as it can be under the current lock-down. At every point in the process from my GP to the hospital staff at every level, the treatment I received was truly amazing. The personal care, support and attention was beyond the call of duty and I continue to live in appreciation for all that you and your colleagues did for me. The current crisis and outcome is difficult for everybody and we recognise the special role you and all the NHS have to play at this time. You are in our prayers and that of our local church community and will continue to be so.“

A wonderful consultation was provided by Mr Lamb who was happy to discuss non-surgical and surgical options open to me. He discussed the pros and cons of all options both medical and surgical and was clearly interested in my best interests and not simply seeking additional patients for the surgical procedure. He was able in a calm and relaxed manner, answer all my questions in a informative and engaging manner. He has kindly gone the extra mile by facilitating a follow up consultation by a member of the brachytherapy team this morning who was able to discuss with me the criteria for following this treatment pathway. The experience I have had was outstanding and could not have been improved had I been a private patient asking the same questions. I am extremely grateful for the time he spent with me on the telephone consultation.

Mr Benjamin Lamb

Many thanks for your review. I'm glad you found the discussion helpful. The main thing in my mind is that you get all the information you want and are empowered to make the right decision for your own health. Good luck with your treatment! Ben

Almost one year ago my husband underwent a prostate removal operation performed by Dr Bejamin Lamb. Following appointments for tests and results which all rolled into one, we were given the news that [my husband] had prostate cancer on Friday 13th July. Dr Lamb was supportive, encouraging and very personable with all his dealings with us as have been all the medical staff we have encountered within the team.

It was all good, but particularly the consultant surgeon who operated on me, Mr benjamin Lamb. He took the time and trouble immediately after my operation to ring my wife at home. She was very grateful for that phone call. I had a very positive experience and have only thanks and gratitude to all the staff that took care of me.

I wanted to write to express my thanks to you for performing my prostatectomy. As I am sure you will appreciate getting a cancer diagnosis is extremely worrying, both for the patient and their family members. However, from my initial consultation to being discharged, everyone who I had contact with were professional and caring. In particular, I wish to pay tribute to your reassuring manner, dedication and expertise, it really is greatly appreciated…
