"No bed available"
About: Southmead Hospital Southmead Hospital Bristol BS10 5NB
Arrived at 7.00am for operation. Was told I was first on list. Seen by nurse doctor physio and aneathasist and waited until 3.30pm only to be informed my op had been Cancelled! Very frustrating after such a long wait. It takes a lot of planning and sorting out (family life) before coming into hospital. Staff were friendly and helpful though . Reason for cancellation was lack of beds only doing day cases and previously cancelled . Is there any guarantee this won t happen again?
