"very poor cancer care"
About: Royal Derby Hospital Royal Derby Hospital Derby DE22 3NE
very poor quality of care provided by the oncology department at this hospital. Despite being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in July my father is yet to receive a proper consultation with an oncology consultant to discuss his treatment and symptoms. I learned more about my fathers condition in 40 minutes speaking to a nurse at the charity organisation prostate cancer uk than I have in 4 months trying to deal with so called specialists at this hospital. He continues to suffer with constant pain and symptoms yet when an appointment is actually arranged to see the oncology consultant the consultant doesn't even bother to show up!
