I am writing this about a friend who we are all encouraging to complain.
They were referred by their gp under the two week guideline for possible cancer and actually seen quite promptly, within 10 days...so far so good ........but then it goes downhill....
They were seen by the wrong consultant even though their letter had the right consultants name on, ok he wasn't in which can't be helped but they were then told that they would see correct one the week after.
The following week no appointment had been booked for them and no request for one had been put through.
They were told numerous facts and about the first visit which they obviously knew to be incorrect.
They were still waiting for further appointment more than 4 weeks later.
When you have being referred for a suspected cancer in the first place, this is absolutely unacceptable leaving the patient and their whole family an friends angry but above all worried! ! ! !
