Since his diagnosis my dad has received no support from his GP in adjusting to the symptoms of his illness. Can anyone advise what steps should have been taken after the GP received confirmation? Should Dad be seeing a specialist nurse or counsellor to deal with the impact this is having on him? Could my Mum access counselling for the anger she has? I'm getting nowhere with the surgery because they won't speak to me about Dads case due to patient confidentiality (which I fully understand) but all I want is some guidance on getting help for both of them.
Any help or advice would be gratefully received.
