I’d just like to say ‘thank you very much’ to Ally for taking on my case. All the effort an time she put into it and the compassionate way she death with it. I apologise for breaking down, but going through all the procedures brought back memories of pain and upset but I’m glad it has all been explained to us. Thank you again. Wendy
