Hi, my first online forum and I come with a purpose.
I'm a 30 year old professional and last year was diagnosed with testiclar cancer. To keep this short, I worked fulltime throughout my treatment but had to defer my MA as I freelance and had bills to pay.
Thanksfully I've picked it up again and for my project I'm looking at ways in which the NHS can streamline services and make medium to long term savings by utilising technologies concurrent in 2017, my idea - a Patient Portal and a separate Medical Professional Portal. Both highly secure and giving realtime information and past medical history. I know there are some pilots that have stopped and started.
Having been through the stages of finding a lump or abnormality, my initial GP appointment through to remission, I found that I suffered a lot of anxiety, mainly not knowing where I was in relations to receiving test results to not knowing when my next appointment was and which hositial or dapartment.
There were numerous occassions when I'd receive appointment letters after the appointment.
Back to my main point. I have 2 questionnaires I'd appreciate if you could spare 10 minutes to fill out.
Medical Professional Questionnaire:
It would be extremely useful if there are any medical professional in the London area I could get in contact with for further research for this part of my project. Please leave details on the final question comments box.
