Terminal cancer 'anger' after NHS failings

A 29-year-old woman who has terminal cancer, after a hospital missed abnormalities in a routine smear test, has said the mistakes in her care were appalling.

Fay Harryman, from Chatham, Kent believes the outcome would have been different if abnormalities in the test results had been spotted at University Hospital in Lewisham, south London in 2009.

South East Today's Simon Jones also spoke to Solicitor Victoria Walne and Sarah Williams of Cancer Research UK.

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust has apologised to Ms Harryman.
