Yes @AliceA I watched it last night and I was particularly struck by the doctor who said 'we must stop wasting patients time' as that sentence rang true to me. My dad has been on palliative care for nine months now for his oesophageal cancer. He has been very well and pain free. He has had a couple of stents fitted so that he can eat and he eats well. No chemo, no radiotherapy. It was the best decision his oncologist could have made. He is happy and has far exceeded the time we expected him to have. She said they could not cure him and treatment would probably make him ill. At his last appointment she said that he was the perfect advert for non aggressive treatment for the elderly. I am thankful to her as it could have been so much worse. Sadly dad is now in hospital recovering from pneumonia which seems to have advanced his dementia and it is possible that he may not be able to return home but I am very glad that he has had the last nine ,months of being happy and well.
