Hi I am supporting a young person with cancer, I don't feel they are getting good care and need one person to look out for everything and them but I don't know how to go about it. Can anyone help, I have googled but not getting what I am looking for. Thanks
Hi FourMarys. Normally once a patient is diagnosed with cancer a CNS is assigned at the same time. The day I went for my 1st Consultation with the surgeon I met my CNS took care of me answering questions and assured me she was my "Go-to" person with any queries. My op took place in Nottingham but I live in Lincolnshire. After the op I was transferred back to Lincolnshire NHS trust and assigned another CNS who is now a trusted friend.
Try to get hold of your friend's Consultant's secretary and see if you can find out from them.
Sending all the best, B xx
