I went to Hippocrates alone to prepare for a bone marrow transplant for leukaemia. I was weak and bald from 3 cycles of chemotherapy and six months in hospital. It was hard work but I knew that it help give me the best possible chance of a good outcome. For the first week I was tired, lonely and miserable and desperately wanted to go home. The staff were wonderful. They knew I was having a difficult time and the nurses and housekeepers could not have been more helpful or caring. The second week I did not want to leave ever as I was having such a good time. I made the most amazing friends and by the third week I was ready to come home with my renewed health and a growing hairstyle! Hippocrates did not cure me but gave me the tools to help my recovery. It was a big commitment to spend nearly £5,000 and travel alone from London but was a valuable investment in my health. The grounds are pretty and the pools are fantastic but it is the people that make Hippocrates special.
