"OAP waiting four days for hip operation "

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

Very disappointed with Stoke Mandeville hospital. My nan came in on a certain day with a broken hip and kept her nil by mouth for an operation next morning. Come three days later she still waiting.

I am deeply heart broken knowing that the hospital don't take care of an elderly person who's in so much pain for four days despite relatives discussing their concerns with doctors and nurses.
