i take your point that 2 national centres and 2 spcecialists would not be able treat everyone , The centres could be used as a resource for other hospitals for information and advice. If people wanted to and were able to attend one of the centres then great , but if not ,specialist help and advice could be given to the treating Dr . At the very least all cancer units should know how to acess the information
we live in London and Jon was treated by one of the best cancer hospitals in Europe and they had no usefull treatment options and were also not really interested in any of the research that we found on the Net
Jon was operated on by Prof Lodge after us finding out about him and asking for a referral.The Dr Jon was under had not heard of the Prof and his work.
I feel that national centres that are well known would help this process and speed up usefull treatment . It will be too late for Jon as he died in Dec06, but I really hope they help other people
I Know that in the UK treatment options are set by NICE guidelines and specialist centres will also help to develop and set the latest treatment options hopefully based on worldwide research
