"Really disappointed with my NHS experience"

I am really disappointed with my NHS experience.
I was scheduled to have surgery on a painful lump on my foot in April 2014. Due to a stroke, just over a week earlier, I was unable to have the procedure. I was given blood-thinning tablets and told to contact PRH once I had been taken off my medication and they would reschedule the foot operation.
I contacted the surgeons secretary in August (after being given the all-clear from the stroke clinic) and was told I would be put back on the waiting list. However since then, the surgeon has left PRH and I have heard nothing. (12 months after my 1st one! ) And now I have to wait for an outpatient appointment.
This is unacceptable as I am (and have been) in pain for over a year.
