"Still Awaiting Gallbladder Operation"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

Had a pre-op for gallbladder operation in October 2014 (after a consultation in August). Chased several times for a date for the operation and each time the person I speak to says they will chase it up - but I am still waiting. Feel as if I have been forgotten about.

Response from Manchester Royal Infirmary

We were very sorry to hear your concerns via the NHS Choices website about your experience in obtaining a date for your operation.

It is very difficult to respond to the specific concern you have raised without having more of your personal details so that we can investigate this specifically and provide you with a response as to why there has been a delay. We take all issues surrounding patient care very seriously and would very much like to hear from you directly about this. If you contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0161 276 8686 or by e-mailing pals@cmft.nhs.uk they will be happy to discuss this with you.
