I took my father along today to an appointment at Southport & Formby District Hospital to the orthalmic department. My father is 88 years of age and has had something wrong with his eyes for a while, but does not know what is wrong with them exactly. We went all the way to the hospital for a 10.30am appointment, only to be told that it had been cancelled. They said they could not see anyone and we were sent away. I thought this was terrible as we had not been informed of this. We called the local surgery who made the appointment having been referred by the doctor and they knew nothing about this. This is not an acceptable thing to do to someone, especially as they are 88 years of age.
