"Wrong diagnosis"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

I received a letter from the hospital that said that I had a serious condition and required treatment. The diagnosis was based upon the results of tests and biopsies I never had. The letter was copied to my GP. The treatment drugs that were recommended have potential bad side effects or complications. It is bad enough that, at this institution, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, but it is appalling - and dangerous - that the right hand doesn't even know what the right hand is doing. I myself am a physician who has practiced for more than 30 years. My assessment of care at the JR: Shameful.
