Comment on one of our posts on CyberKnife® Radiosurgery:
I am delighted that the NHS is beginning to embrace the CyberKnife® radiosurgery system.
What is concerning me is the situation which has arisen, whereby some Trusts are willing to refer NHS patients for assessment at CyberKnife® Centre and others flatly refusing. This is as bad, if not, worse, than the drug postcode lottery and I now find myself being again, patronised and dismissed as a busy body by MPs, journalists and health professionals. There needs to be some kind of uniformity regarding this, particularly because, by the end of 2011, there will be at least three CyberKnife® systems in the NHS.
I intend to continue my quest for fairness re this issue. I find it obscene and unacceptable for non-medical personnel in the NHS to be making decisions on matters they really do not know enough about. CyberKnife® is here to stay, thank goodness and I am sure it will go from strength to strength!
