I went to see Dr S last week.
Apparently the NHS trust at Medway Maritime Hospital where he operates is not going to fund his practice there from some time in the not-too-distant future, so he is hoping to re-home at another NHS hospital.
i got the impression all this is happening in the next few months.
He will continue his private practice as normal while he tries to find a new NHS home.
(for our non-UK friends, NHS = National Health Service = taxpayer funded free healthcare)
I will check in separately to update my treatment diary - it’s been a while. but, in short, slow, steady improvements with a few ups and downs.
