"Mismanagement of my admission to PRI"

This story is about several weeks of mismanagement of my admission to Perth Royal Infirmary.
I was admitted for an operation which was cancelled due to an emergency.
At a later date I was telephoned by ward and told that a bed was available for an evening and I was advised that it would be.
Next day I prepared for surgery am, advised to be approx 11 am.
Mid day I was told it was cancelled as bed shortage and no alternative offered.
How is it possible to cancel theatre list midway? Whoever has powers to do this
is very irresponsible, do they appreciate the mental and physical repercussions
of such actions?
Nursing staff were most sympathetic and kind to me.
