Customer Question

my son has just been diagnosed with stomach cancer (in the Jejumum) he is 41 years of age. We are waiting for the team to get back to him as to the treatment, and they have intimated that he will need an operation. He should have had a phone call this morning from them but as to now just after 1pm is still waiting. there have been a few delays regarding diagnosis etc and I feel that this now needs a speedy resolution. If he went private could you give me the approx cost plus how soon could he see a cancer specialist as we now regard this as urgent, thank you
