"Cancer treatment and Care"

About: Castle Hill Hospital

It is now 3 weeks since my procedure for breast cancer and I am still waiting for the results. I was told today that they are still waiting for the results from the path lab. I believe they (MDT) only meet on a Friday, which means the earliest appointment will be after 15 November 2013. Such a let down after the excellent treatment and care.
