"Disgusted with lack of treatment given"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Anything else?

Follow on from my last review. Have now been told my father could die at the weekend and since him being told about cancer, no treatment been given. The consultant took it upon himself not to do a biopsy. Been in hospital 1 month has not had cancer treatment started. It was nearly three weeks before a treatment plan started. How can this hospital be allowed to get away with the way they treat people? It should be closed down. Some health service that is provided in this country! No wonder Prince Charles is kicking off about it, and to top it all, rang the hospital to see how he was they said they would get a doctor to ring me back it never happened
