my lifelong best friend has just discovered her dad has small cell lung cancer. It has spread to the bones. Her brother is very wealthy and they are trying to decide whether it would help her dad to go privately to either Christie's in Manchester/Liverpool or the Royal Marsden. The treatment he has received so far round here (stafford) has been very inconsistent and completely lacking in empathy. His tumour has grown very quickly and has spread quickly so time is of the essence yet the service round here is moving very slowly with alot of delays.
Any advice on what she should do? Private or stick with the NHS? Is he likely to get any significant benefits from further treatment.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
