Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Can I confirm that you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.

I am sorry to heart that.

Unfortunately, survivin injections have not yet approved in the UK as far as I am aware. Once these become available they will be offered to those who are eligible.
