"Why can't we make the appointment after the visit? "

About: Broomfield Hospital

(as a relative),

My wife has regular check ups as a former cancer patient. Appointments were always made after she had seen the doctor. Nowadays they say they will send a letter for the next appointment. No such appointment was made for her. Why can't we make the appointment after the visit? Then we know its done as check ups are usually 6 months to a year and can be forgotten.

Thank you for the post. I am very sorry that the appointment was not made on this occasion. I will take the comment to the next outpatient experience meeting. The Mid Essex Cancer Servive User Group are looking for members to help give feedback and shape services www.mecsug.org.uk/
