Code 2: None Compliance with Standardised Pathways for Psychosexual Care
The second theme that arose was none compliance (Table 61.1). National standards for oncological follow- up are followed, however psychosexual follow-up is lacking which was felt to lead to more patient distress. Even though psychosexual care is mentioned by NICE guidelines,
‘it is not part of a standard pathway, and patients have to be referred outside of department for input.’—HCP 7.
