Customer Question

my brother-in-law mr Gordon Parrett is currently undergoing treatment in Kent& Canterbury Hospital for cancer, he is 85years old and has been in and out of this hospital several times in the last 6 months. He attended for a set of tests last Wednesday and was recalled on the Thursday for a Blood disorder, he has a letter asking him to attend this Wednesday for the procedure agreed to be performed, as he was kept in for treatment for kidney problems he was told that the op planned for this Wednesday was on the list to be done. earlier today he was told no such op was listed. This appears to be a complete shambles, I am wanting to make a complaint as this is to mind unacceptable.

Dr. David :
