Been at the Queen Alexandra hospital most of today with Julie as she had been in severe pain for several hours. phoned the Royal Marsden and the clinical practitioner diagnosed infection present or a possible clot. Armed with this info, went to QA as instructed, easily got through and was fast tracked, really great service from Dr Dave, Staff Nurse Tracy and the rest of the crew, Julie was given oxygen and antibiotics, then we ran into hospital politics. “We are struggling to get you a bed in Oncology because they don’t like treating patients from a different hospital”
Come on QA managers, we wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for the inefficiency of one of your consultants in the first place, mis-diagnosing Julie’s cancer for two years. Get yourselves sorted!!
