Waiting Time for Appointments

The huge problem is that once someone has been diagnosed to have cancer, or even if there is a suspicion of cancer; most families want an appointment with their doctor straightaway. This seems to be a valid request most times, as anxiety levels are HUGE.

As a specialist, we are usually keen to have a definitive diagnosis of cancer prior to an OPD review. The idea being that the patient's GP or doctor makes a diagnosis of cancer by a biopsy or needle aspiration and then makes the referral.
