Doctors failing cancer patients26th September 2011
The medical director of MacMillan Cancer Support, Professor Jane Maher, has said GPs are "failing cancer patients far too often".
Professor Maher told the Guardian: "By not sharing vital information and recording clearly on the patients' medical records they are putting a significant number of cancer patients at risk of having their work, health, relationships and home lives unnecessarily spoiled by long-term side-effects of their treatment. Based on the NCSI work looking into consequences of cancer treatment, I fear that up to 500,000 people's symptoms are being missed by GPs."
