What I liked: "As a long term transplant patient i have been seen by this Gentleman on many occasions.
Always treated with courtesy and kindness.
We are very lucky to have him caring for us."

Could improve: "Not a thing."

I went for: renal check

Patient who saw Dr. Raj Thuraisingham in The Royal London Hospital

What I liked: "I cannot praise Dr Raftery enough. After 24 years since my 1st transplant (where Dr Raftery looked after me) I'm back under his care the second time round. A marvellous, attentive, compassionate Dr who has time for patients. I wouldn't have come through my operation without him."

Could improve: "That he NEVER retires!"

I went for: Kidney transplant

I went for: Sleep apnea

Could improve: "Nothing, great service."

Meningiomas are benign tumours of the meninges, the lining of the brain and spine. They are not uncommon chance findings on brain scans; sometimes cause epilepsy or paralysis. Some meningiomas need surgery to remove them others can be left alone or monitored with serial MRI scans. Memingiomas can be hormonally sensitive, are commoner in women than men, and in postmenopausal women often do not change in size over many years.
