Limited knowledge a a variety / ranges if treatment for cancer care Lack of continuity if care , various consultants instead of same one for cancer patients , lack of confidence in staff as u are treated as a figure / target hit. Rather than a person with feelings , having cancer is unsupported psychological aspects from consultants , this is neglected , patient then loses confidence with the system . Having cancer is atraumatic & emotional time , whether it's terminal or not , lack of supportive staff is very worrying and bode ring on neglect . Staff should remember it's not an everyday occurrence for them receiving a diagnosis and it's a shock and a difficult time for everyone involved. ,it needs to be handled more supportively and sensitively . A professional should be paired up with a patient and this professional should see the pt at each appoint to develop confidence & trust , and then the conveyabelt system disappears . Cancer treatment should be tailored for each individual s needs if standards are to be raised in any way , what's on offer now is appalling and. Insufficient and could be actually leading to life loss .
