Medical Experts

Many within the medical profession recognise and endorse the vital role cancer support organisations such as Look Good Feel Better play in the positive management of cancer treatment. A positive attitude can go a long way towards a patient’s successful recovery, a fact supported by medical research.

If we hold services in your area, you could help raise awareness by displaying leaflets and posters and signposting patients to our website.

Dr Margaret Spittle OBE - Clinical Oncologist

With a long and eminent career as an oncology consultant at UCLH and St. Thomas' Hospital and awarded an OBE for services to medicine, Dr. Margaret Spittle, discusses the work of Look Good Feel Better and why she believes the wellbeing of a patient should also be considered as part of the overall treatment plan.

Professor Hilary Thomas

Professor Hilary Thomas trained in clinical oncology at Hammersmith Hospital and has a PhD in the biology of breast cancer. After a career spanning 23 years she left the NHS in 2007 to take up the post of Group Medical Director of Care UK and then joined KPMG's health advisory practice in 2009 where she is a Partner. “I had seen the positive effects of LGFB workshops on my patients for many years but nothing prepared me for being diagnosed myself. You don’t realise how vulnerable women feel when they look into a mirror and see a stranger staring back. Being shown simple make-up skills made me feel able to go out looking as ‘normal’ as possible.”
