"More warning for my mum's cancelled appointment "

About: City Hospital campus Queen's Medical Centre / General surgery

(as a relative),

My mum is going through chemotherapy treatment at the moment at Nottingham City as an out patient. So far she has had one treatment.

About three weeks ago she fell and broke her hip and was taken to Queens Medical Nottingham. They kept her in until she was on her feet again. The staff there were marvellous, they kept in touch with Nottingham City because she was due to have another chemo treatment but they cancelled this for another week which was alright because she would be a bit stronger by then.

However she had an appointment at Nottingham City on Friday to be there at 12.40pm. She got there just on time bearing in mind she has to use a zimmer frame at the moment and rely on people to take her because my dad can't drive, only to be kept waiting, then told it was cancelled.

It would have took 2 minutes for someone to phone and cancel. As you can see I'm not very happy. My mum is 70 years old and she was shattered when she got home at about 5.00 pm because she had to wait for someone to fetch her
