This is dreadful care. Phone his allocated nurse specialist and ask:
- why can't he try a different drug
- exactly where has it spread to
- has anyone referred him to palliative care services such as the local hospice team
If he doesn't have an allocated nurse, ask his GP and phone the nurses here at the number above. You will need a bit more information like exactly which hormones he is on now (or has just stopped) and what he has had in the past.
