"The stress of 2 cancelled operations for my 8 year..."

About: Birmingham Children's Hospital

My daughter was due a operation last week at the Birmingham Children's Hospital which was cancelled the day before. Then I was given a call 5 days later asking us to come in 2 days' time at 4pm. On that day at 10am I got a phone call cancelling this operation too. This is a lot of stress for an 8 year old. The cancellation was due to lack of beds both times.
