About: Leicester Royal Infirmary Leicester Royal Infirmary Leicester LE1 5WW
My daughter suffers from sleep apnoea caused by very enlarged tonsils and adenoids, it's tiring and draining for the whole family on a normal day never mind in winter when there viruses about and she finds it difficult to breathe. She has been on the waiting list for an op since before summer and she has had her op date moved by the hospital so many times. We have now been told that the op won't be until well into the new year and they can't even give us a new date. My daughter needs this op. It will be us on the door of a&e over winter because the op hasn't been done and she will get very ill, again. Does the nhs even do this op by referrals any more?! Do we have to go through a&e?! Because it certainly seems that way!
