Only Fools And Horses star furious after ten hour A&E wait amid cancer battle – saying he 'gave up and went home' | The Sun

ONLY Fools And Horses star Patrick Murray has been left furious following a ten hour A&E wait amid his cancer battle.

Patrick, 66, announced in April that the disease had returned after getting the all clear from lung cancer last year.

In a tweet posted to X at 2:30am today, he told fans he'd gone home after not being seen by a medical professional.

The actor wrote, "Ten hours waiting in A&E is unacceptable. I gave up and went home. The workers are wonderful, but the system is seriously flawed. The NHS needs fixing, not hollow promises."

Patrick – best known for playing Mickey Pearce in Only Fools and Horses – recently told how the disease has now spread to his pelvis and legs.

He said: "Despite all the wonderful efforts by the medical and nursing teams at Medway, Guys, and Kings College hospitals, the lung cancer has returned.

A look at the life of Only Fools And Horses star Patrick Murray

"I thought I had a painful groin strain a couple of months ago, unfortunately that turned out to be the cancer getting into my pelvis and leg bones. It has also entered my lymphatic system.

"What about the good news? I had radiology treatment last week and my oncologist is fairly confident this will stop the leg pain, and I will be up and about again.

"Another positive is my consultant. He is confident that the chemo will keep things in check for months and even years."

Patrick continued: "His optimism comes not from kindness of which I know he has in spades, but advances in cancer medicine.
