"Having to beg for help from the NHS"

Diagnosed with breast cancer my wife received surgery at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport.
Although the surgery was a success, she developed sepsis and other infections, her outpatient care was practically non existent, the Breast care nurse who told us she would be her support throughout, actually only came out to see her once, and actually phoned the house 2 weeks after my wife was discharged after being rushed into hospital with sepsis, and didn't even know about it!
Now having problems with after treatment, my wife's GP has contacted the consultant Mr Gateley about 12 times by mail in the past 5 months for advice on her treatment and left messages for him but without getting any form of response or reply.
At our wits end now and ashamed that we are having to beg for help and advice from the NHS.
