My DDH is undergoing daily radiotherapy treatment at a hospital 30 mile away from us. He cancelled an appointment with his consultant at our local hospital because he obviously cannot make at the moment.
He cancelled by telephone and was assured that he would receive another appointment for when the treatment was finished.
Today a letter arrived in the post stating that as he did not attend his appointment on Dec 4th he is now discharged back to his GP.
I am furious, he is going through so much at the moment.
I have sent an email and will ring them on Monday.
We have had such good service at this hospital that it is a shame they get this important thing wrong and cause him distress and worry.
The person who he was due to see is the consultant from the Radiotherapy Dept who sorted out his treatment. Something has gone wrong somewhere and it isn't us.
