"too slow with diagnosis for my mum"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

Anything else?

My mum came to this hospital with a blocked liver. Was in all summer with endless tests to wonder exactly what was needed/wrong. In end went to St James Leeds after they eventually figured it out. Leeds was great but it was too late, her cancer had spread to her other organs. Mum died this September. Heartbreaking for all of us. Pinderfields staff should have sent mum to Leeds earlier and then it may not have been this outcome. Bad feelings about the place now.
