"The medical opinions that we received from POSO have been critical in enabling us to get the best possible local treatment for a very difficult and aggressive cancer. The professional medical opinions seemed to employ solution-finding techniques that were over and above the standard opinion that we got locally. Our POSO case coordinator was absolutely wonderful in getting the report to us in a critically timely manner. POSO was able to give us some hope when our own doctor had immediately given up and was talking about palliative care. This gave us the specialised medical information, which we could not possibly have obtained ourselves, to look for better treatment options locally. I am so grateful that this service exists."
