Doctor’s office sends cancer diagnosis instead of Christmas greeting

“Diagnosis – Aggressive lung cancer with metastases”: Shortly before Christmas, a doctor’s office in northern England unnecessarily frightened a number of patients with this message – because it was accidentally sent instead of a Christmas greeting.

In the UK, patients at a doctor’s surgery received a cancer diagnosis in the Christmas mail instead of congratulations. (archive image)

As the newspaper “The Sun” reported on Thursday, numerous patients in a practice in Askern near Doncaster received the SMS with the cancer diagnosis immediately before the holidays. Shortly thereafter, another SMS followed with an apology: the diagnosis had been sent “by mistake”. “Our message to you should be: We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,” wrote the practice, which initially did not comment on the case when asked.

Many of those affected reacted angrily. Carl Chegwin published a screenshot of the SMS on the online network Facebook and wrote: “Another big mistake by lousy doctors.” Another user wrote: “Everyone in Askern received this message!”
