What I liked
Let me be clear - this is about my father's treatment. He has Prostate Cancer. Liked? Nothing. As there really was nothing to like about how he has been treated in the last week.
What could be improved
His blood test could have been put in the correct bottle. That would have ensured his appointment was worthwhile and they had something to discuss. When he was sent for another blood test it would have helped to have been given the form needed, rather than the blood team sending him back for a form. It would have helped had my own GP not had to query the drug and agree with the hospital to change the actual drug prescribed.
My father had to wait over three weeks for the initial consultation.
