"Urology department"

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

I had a Kidney removed due to a large Cancerous Tumour in 2012. I am supposed to have 6 monthly check ups, I had a CT Scan in November 2014 and the appointment where I receive my results to tell me if the cancer is back again or not was cancelled 9 times, after 5 months and still ongoing cancellations and no test results my GP transferred me to a different hospital.

The Urology secretary was incredibly rude and left me in tears and I received a very short reply from my Urologist when my GP challenged them about the delay in my results.

I can't even express how let down I felt by the Urology department at St Peters hospital.

When I contacted Pals they assured me I would be called back and yet I heard nothing. Its a disgrace.
