Response from Lister Hospital

We're really sorry - the number of emergency patients has been very high of late, which of course cannot be predicted and sometimes has had the really unfortunate effect of causing planned procedures to be cancelled at very short notice. It's not something we want to see happen and do everything to avoid, but sometimes circumstances conspire against us. If you would like us to find out what's happening in terms of getting a new date, please email us at generalenquiries.enh-tr@nhs.net and we'll follow this up for you.
