Re: NHS Radiation Therapy in UK?

I traveled from California to Essen, Germany to get the X-ray treatment. The hospital charges for two hands and 5 treatments was 400 Euros in 2007 as a non-German citizen.

I would pay to slow the disease rather than lose a year jumping through medical bureaucracy. As bad as the NHS may be in the UK it is light years ahead of the for profit medical care industry in the USA.

Re: NHS Radiation Therapy in UK?

I finally got around to seeing another GP in my practice for referral for RT, the hand surgeon consultant they insisted on sending me to, wanted to operate (surprise surprise!) The GP I saw this morning was a locum so he was going to ask for advice, but I had a call from the surgery later asking me when I had my last RT at Poole, she said she was writing the referral letter today, so sounds like success so far.........

I rang Dr Goodman's secretary at Exeter and she was very helpful, asked me to send photo's of my hand by email to show him and she would look out for my referral. Sounds promising so far but will let you all know what happens.
