"Wait all day from 7am until 6pm for planned..."
About: Addenbrooke's Hospital Addenbrooke's Hospital Cambridge CB2 0QQ
Admitted for operation. I was third then last on list, all ready to go. (I occupied bed x2 and ward had one available)At 6pm informed I can go home run out of theatre time. I asked if I could stay to have it done in morning , no gotta go home. Crazy waste of their time, bed TED stockings, form filling blood tests etc. I am now in the system for the 28 day rebooking.Noone seems to care.the visitor couldn't believe it either the casual way I got told. I was up at 5am for arrival at 7am told going home 6pm. I changed my work etc plus mentally was prepared, husband kids all sorted out. Now I have to go back to waiting on the conveyor belted targeted business run NHS. I had a big disappointment today. Let down of the shiny hospital and will have to face the form filling all over again. I would not recommend again. Over stretched surgeons, not their fault. Prepare to be cancelled it must happen a lot to the last person
