Over all the medical treatment was very efficient and well organised. I was referred for Prostate Cancer treatment.
The treatment was fine however I found it impossible to discuss intimate sexual and personal subjects with the Clinical Nurse Specialists as they were all female. The NHS and the hospital does not consider Male patients should expect to be able to express a gender preference for intimate discussions. I was simply told the nurses were professional and I therefore I had no choice. In the end I decided to avoid some follow up discussions and seek alternative solutions.
