"Some delays in my wife's cancer treatment"
Posted by Jelunga (as ),
My wife was diagnosed with liver cancer early June in Derby Royal. We asked for her care to be transferred to Nottingham City because it is both nearer and is the regional centre.
In my opinion there was significant delay in starting treatment. It seemed like on transfer, she seemed to have to join the bottom of the queue again.
Consultant appointment was quick, but ages to wait for CT scan - over 1 month if she had not been an urgent admittance. Cannot fault medical and nursing staff. Just poor administration I believe.
