I'm currently on the waiting list for surgery which was supposed to have been undertaken in January 2015 at the latest. I'm still waiting and everytime I ring up I'm told the operation will be the next month or the month after, but I'm not given a date. I also got in touch with the PALS team about the delays but was told that the 18 week maximum wait was just a guideline and not a legal limit, which isn't true. They were no help whatsoever in finding and alternative pathway and I've essentially had to put any plans I have for the year on hold as I obviously don't want to refuse the operation date when I finally get one.
