Re: Returning from abroad

Hi Kittkatt,  We don't return until early June so am just planning as I will have to cancel my appointments with the consultant here in July .   I didn't want to have to wait months and months to get back in the loop.  I think I will give my old Doctors a ring when I am back in the UK for a few days soon.      I will get my notes to bring back, haven't asked if they can be in english !  Thanks for replying.

Re: Returning from abroad

Hi, welcome back to UK! You'll need to register with your local GP who can refer you to your nearest breast clinic for on going treatment and follow-up. The GP may be able to prescribe your medication directly but they may want direction from the clinic, depending what it is. Do you have translated copies of your Dutch notes?
Bests,

Returning from abroad

Hi all,  I had a mastectomy in April 2012 in the UK.  For the last couple of years I have been living in the Netherlands (due to hubbys job).    I am now returning to the UK and wondered who I contact about resuming treatment in the UK as I am due to change medication in July.  Do I contact a doctor or the BCC ?  Thanks for any advice.
