I'm thinking of decamping to the Christie hospital in Manchester - we live in a fairly rural area, and I never see the same haematologist twice,( always locums, who of course don't know my history )they also don't appear to have their fingers on the button re drug trials etc...I'm hoping perhaps in a bigger, cancer specific Hospital they'll have their fingers on the button and I might have more hope of seeing the same person every week!
Anyway, just a bit concerned as the the lead consultant there says he can't confirm that the pharmacy stocks, or can get, the same medication - I take white hydroxicarbamide made by Medac in Hamburg, Germany. For the last four years these have been going down a treat - touch wood - and I'm really loathe to rock the boat, just in case.
I'm very sensitive to different "fillers" used in drugs and would prefer to stick to the same make. Does anyone know if local pharmacy's can supply? Boots etc.
Would really appreciate any feedback you can give.
