"Colonoscopy cancelled without informing me"

I have been referred to the RSH for consultation regarding my ongoing GI problems. My GP referred me first for an Endoscopy, booked on the choose and book website and scheduled for tomorrow morning. Thinking it odd that I hadn't had a confirmation letter I just logged on to check the time and discover it has in fact been cancelled but I haven't been informed. It appears the consultant or team I have been referred to have arbitrarily referred on to colorectal surgery which is another 3 month wait. The message on the choose and book site suggested I call the original consultant to find out why I wont be going in the morning. Absolutely shambolic and its a good job I found out when I did before I travelled. I will be making a complaint as this is the second time this has happened, albeit for different referrals but at the very least a phone call to advise me I would be going elsewhere wouldn't have gone amiss.
