A patient at Nottingham City Hospital has been left worried after test results were lost.
“My mother is receiving treatment for breast cancer at Nottingham city hospital. The op went well, but, despite being told before the surgery that the tumor was hormone responsive, since the op we have been told we are waiting for test results, to see if Herceptin would be of use.
We went to the oncology clinic 2 weeks ago, and were told that the results weren’t back, but would be in 7 days. We went for another appointment today, and, despite the promises the results still weren’t back.
In fact it seems the sample had been lost, and was lost when we were promised a result 2 weeks ago…
This has now carried on for weeks. My mother is incredibly worried, and very nearly at her wits’ end. I am disgusted!”
