Hi Ladies and gents. Well I am alive to tell the tale. Seriously Sharon and Yvonne could not have done more to put me at ease. Thank you to both. Well I started well a brief resume of who I was and why I found myself speaking to the clinicians and Consultants present. I touched on how a Gynae Cancer Diagnosis affects our lives and we are filled with uncertainty. I added that patients waiting in a public area are stressed. I acknowledged the shortfalls the Staff have to contend with on a daily basis due to staff shortages etc. For us patients I said it was imperative every Gynae patient had a point of contact between reviews. I also added that Gynae Cancer was the poor relation in comparison to services in Breast Cancer. Finally I added my long term hope for PPI was to have a counsellor added to the team. Yes I was shaking at times but I am grateful I was well enough to be standing there. So I would urge you to keep an eye on the PPI section of the ISGO page. Do consider joining us at our next meeting in March or April 2018. Patients, family members and Reps from Patient Support Groups are very welcome.
