"Cancer treatment fiasco. Manipulated waiting times"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

My father has received excellent clinical care from Hillingdon hospital but has been so badly let down by the PALS team and the executive management team. Repeated logistal failures have meant that a year after being referred to Hillingdon hospital as a query cancer he has yet to receive a definitive diagnosis or appropriate treatment.. He has been discharged allowing, i believe, the hospital to remove him from the cancer waiting times when all that has happened is that transport failed to arrive to collect him. He is 88 years old, house bound and suffers from dementia
