About: Countess Of Chester Hospital

Had my cataract operation cancelled for the 3rd time in 6 weeks all for non clinical reasons. No idea when my operation will go ahead. So much for the NHS constitution. Obviously NHS don't care if I go blind in 1 eye never mind the stress its causing to me and my husband
