Hospital choice !!

I am going to have some more tests done in beginning of August and was told on the results of these tests I may have to have a lung biopsy.consultant said probably be done in Nottingham.but Nottingham is an hours drive from me and I was wondering if you have a choice of hospitals ? Harefield,although miles from me is where my mum in law lives.means wifey would be only 5 mins away.

Normally when I need to have tests done, I am given a choice of nearest hospitals that provide the services to do those specific tests. If you aren't given a choice, maybe ask for the closer hospital. Good luck for August, remind us nearer the time, remember the memory ain't what it used to be. LOL :) xx

I do not know if you still have a choice of hospitals any more, I know my husband was given a choice a few years ago for an op he had to have, but not sure if thats still the case with changes to the NHS I think that KOTC knows a fair bit about Nottingham, so will be able to advise you there. It would be good if you could be refered to Harefield . I swear by Grantham an excellent hospital with excellent nurses and consultants but is probably to far out of your way? Good luck with whatever you deceide Julie xxx

You can still choose your hospital and even your Consultant. This can be arranged at your GP's surgery.
