NHS Glasgow to apologise after medics failed to tell cancer patient disease had spread

20 March 2019 – Herald Scotland

A cancer patient was not informed that his cancer had spread, for several months after a mix up by senior consultants.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has been told to apologise to the man’s widow after it emerged that a “breakdown in communication” between the radiologist and oncologist in charge of his care meant that he was not told about the results of a scan until he contacted his own GP several months later.
