"waiting time"

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

I am under a surgeon at the royal . my case is quite complicated and i appreciate that things have to be checked properly prior to my surgery . however having had the checks asked for by the surgeon and a pre op assessment done over a month ago i am very disappointed that i have heard nothing . contacted the hospital today and was informed that the surgeon hasnt even looked at the report she asked for . in the mean time my condition worsens . was told by the people that allot the operation times that it could be months yet as my surgeon hasnt even put me on the list . where is the patient care and involvement?i am just left hanging in the wind having no information and increasing pain
