An interesting article in Irish Times today, Mon 25//5/15, (Martin Wall) on a report to Government on the above and some items that we always raised were included: "the current default position ....whereby cancer patients with issues re-enter treatment through emergency departments is unacceptable"; "the use of agency nurses in inpatient hospital units should be phased out"; the creation of "comprehensive multidisciplinary oncology teams" etc. it also recommends that the NCCP continue to oversee the Irish cancer system & lots more.
so we were not being cranky when we wanted those items.
Try and access the Irish Times website and read the article, it is worth it.
Regards to all,
