“I have now had two TURPs, a Robotic Radical Prostatectomy, Pelvic Lympadenectomy at the hands of Peter Sutherland and John Bolt. I cannot speak highly enough of this practice, its people and its attitude to the care of its patients. From the surgeons, the nurses, the physiotherapists and the administrative staff – they are all very special people in the way they conduct their business. Special mention to John Bolt, Peter Sutherland, Sharn, Rachel and Emily. My Christmas would be bleak without them.” – Harry Bradford
