The write up about the facilities at this hospital look very good but does not make clear that not everybody is able to have their operation there because Halton does not have a high dependancy bed. Due to my weight I must have my total knee replacement at Warrington Hospital. I don't have a problem with the operation being done at Warrington however reading about the facilities makes it sound as if all operations are done at Halton. If the facilities are that good why not have a high dependancy bed then everybody can be catered for. As the previous person I have been waiting since my original consultation in March. Since the beginning of the year I have been unable to go more than a few hundred yards on my own and the optimism of an operation now turning to depression I have got myself a mobility scooter as I cannot see my operation happening in the near future. As far as I am concerned the system is seriously flawed or I am being discriminated against because of my weight.
