Basically being told that I had missed an appointment to see a knee surgeon when I never received a letter or more than likely a letter was never sent because they had they right address on the system and I had received all the other letters from the hospital up to that point.
I waited a fair few months from seeing the consultant who referred me to the knee surgeon. I phoned to check what was going on and got told I missed my appointment. I feel annoyed that a lot of time has been wasted because I'm probably further back the waiting list than I should through no fault of my own.
Is this a ploy to keep waiting list and times down?
