I have spoken with the potential new consultant’s PA who advised that she will need a referral from either my GP, or the previous oncologist. Given that he is now on the other side of the world, I spoke with my GP yesterday and he is to fax (remember them?) a letter of referral over to her.
I anticipate that she will contact me by post in the next week to arrange an appointment with him shortly.
All this is good. The new man is one of the top 10 in his field in the country, from what I can gather, so he should know his stuff.
