In a previous review I had misunderstood the reason for the cancellation of all routine procedures at the 11th hour. ie. when I was sitting with my bags packed waiting for transport into Derriford. I now find that the cancellation of all routine procedures was due to the fact that there were no beds available for the aftercare as they had been taken by emergency admissions. This would indicate that very valuable machinery and surgeon's skills are not being used to the optimum. How David Cameron can keep spouting that the health service is not in crisis beats me.
