"Cancelled appointments"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

My son has Crohn's Disease a life long condition that needs to monitored. I am sick to death of his appointments being cancelled the latest one with as little as three days notice. It's no wonder the the health service is in a mess, if they helped people manage their conditions and checked on them then conditions wouldn't worsen and need more costly intervention at a later date. The medication he is on has serious side effects. They just don't care about their patients. I find it disgusting.
