Topic: referral to aintree hospital
hello all, as some of you know ;mum wanted to get further detailed tests done at Aintree hospital and the oncologist agreed with this, we saw him on the 17th june, he agreed to refer on immediately,
I started getting a bit worried on Friday that we have heard nothing so I rang through to Aintree and the secretary to the doctor said that she has not received any paperwork or any phonecalls so I got my dad to fax her the referral letter that was sent to them on the 20th as we requested a copy of the letter. I then spoke with the nurse specialist who works alongside the oncologist and she said that the letter was sent to them on the 20th june but didn't follow it up with a phonecall.
So the secretary at Aintree asked me to fax the referral letter that came to my dads house, so I got him to do that and she said she would try her best to get things sorted her endm
Just feeling a bit frustrated and let down that lack of communication and monitoring has led to this delay
just worried as the weeks go on, things could be progressing and making it harder to manage and deal with.
