"10 Years on and still waiting for surgery for..."

About: Wrightington Hospital

In 2006 I had revision surgery at Wrightington but continued in pain and after several visits over the years to see the surgeon who performed the operation was told in clinic on the 31st December 2014 that I would need re-Revision on my left hip. I duly had cardiology and respiratory assessment but as yet have not yet been given a date for surgery. Extremely disappointed with the wait and lack of communication by this hospital.
