My mother has been in hospital now for 11 days treated for cancer Thursday we was told we would have the results of the tests she had under taken no later than Friday at six. Today Tuesday we were all in the hospital after being told over the weekend to be at my mothers side for the over all outcome of the results that we were supposed to have on Friday half past three we were at my mothers bedside I myself travelled 1 1/2 hours each way and carrying out 8 hours work re arranging work that I had got booked in for that day and leaving my house in Sedgley at 3:15 this morning to make sure I was in the hospital on time to meet my two brothers who both had taken part days holiday to be with our mother to be told by the cancer doctors under study they were running late on their clinic and would not be able to make it so no results were given and after a weekend of worry for all the family we are now being told she will get the results on Thursday I find this very un professional on the part of the doctor who originally called the meeting not even to show their presence do they realise they are playing with peoples lives? any person with a job to do would stay and for fill the obligation to the person they are representing next stop ombudsman! May I say the staff on the wards are second to none the best you could wish for. Regards a very unhappy son with two unhappy brothers Alan
