"A consultant's attitude to my late husband"

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. He was admitted into hospital.
During his stay, his consultant came on the ward; told him he had no future and that he had better make his mind up quick if he wanted to have any treatment. They then marched off leaving him very distressed.
Following his death I complained to the NHS about this consultant but received a disingenuous reply. The Ombudsman said they could not investigate it.
This person should not be allowed to deal with patients face to face.
