I attended medical oncology for the first time last monday at wishaw general. the unit was bright and airy with a nice outlook to gardens, the waiting room had comfortable chairs, a TV, and you could make tea or coffee while you wait, as a nervous first timer, it helped to relax. I attended for the second time today and the unit had moved. my husband and I got there at 9am. had blood taken at 9. 10am. and told to come back an hour later, we got back to the unit at10. 05am. we had to sit in a waiting room with no windows, hard plastic chairs, no TV, no way to make tea or coffee. it was like being in a cardboard box. we had to sit there till 12. 0, clock. I suggest whoever thought of this should try it for 2hours, if you were not depressed before arrived you will be when you leave. everyone who was there today said the same thing. oncology patients have to wait hours for drugs to come up. not looking forward to having to go through it again.
