An out of hours doctor (not from my GP practice) had me admitted to hospital after I was experiencing excruciating abdominal pain one Sunday evening. From there I went on to get my diagnosis of ovarian cancer. I had surgery in March and then later had my staples removed by a practice nurse. However, I have never had any contact from a GP at my practice at any time and I was just wondering how usual this was? Is it standard protocol just to deal with the doctors at the hospital? I would be interested to hear of your experiences.
