"Still waiting!"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

I'm waiting for a template biopsy for prostate cancer having had a biopsy done at Hereford show a positive result for cancer. It's nearly 3 months now I have been waiting. It's completely unacceptable. What makes it worse is this isn't my local hospital. I live in Brecon in Powys. Is this why I'm not getting the treatment for cancer that the politicians are saying we will get quickly? I'm appalled!
