Hello Mrstimps. I have no experience of secondary breast cancer, but was treated last year for IDC at Salisbury. The 2 female breast surgeons there are brilliant, didn't have too much to do with BCN. Follow up care with Macmillan is also excellent. Salisbury is not considered a large hospital, so radiotherapy is done at Southampton as are other things. Also my mother in law is in Salisbury Hosp at the moment, with bowel cancer complications. Cannot speak highly enough of her surgeons and all the staff on her ward, marvellous people. There is also a local self-help support group which meets every month in Salisbury and even a cancer choir. I could give you details if you want. Do hope you find the hospital to be as helpful as I have. Good wishes to your Mum and let me know if I can do anything to help. Christine xxx
