"Still Waiting for an Emergency Operation"

My son (9 months) has been on the emergency waiting list for almost seven weeks to have a Diaphragmatic hernia repair. We have been in hospital three times now and each time the operation has been unable to take place due to there being no Intensive Care bed available. Yesterday we were sent home and told to phone this morning only to be told again there is no bed for him. Whilst I appreciate that other emergencies will happen I cannot see how the level of care my son is receiving is acceptable.
