"No surgeon available for operation"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I had an appointment at the day services centre at north manchester hospital today. I waited 90 minutes to be seen, and then a further 2 hours wearing a surgical gown sat in a chair pre-operation only to be told my operation was cancelled as they couldnt get a surgeon! I have re-arranged all my work shifts and other appointments for the next 2 weeks because of this operation. It has caused me a lot of inconvenience. What a terrible way to run a clinic.
