"Pain management cancellation."
About: Leicester General Hospital Leicester General Hospital Leicester LE5 4PW
I have just returned home after a wasted few hours in day case one. I was checked in by very pleasant and professional young nurses, only to be told the the procedure was cancelled.Apparently the doctor who was scheduled to do this procedure had called in sick so we were all sent home with another date in the near future. I know you probably have a staff shortage but I would have thought you'd have a standby crew. I don't know the history of the other patients, but I am in a great deal of pain otherwise I wouldn't be in Pain Management. All my pain is due to a botched hip replacement.,three and a half years ago.
The last time I was at LGH I saw the groups of young doctors on strike. How dare they when you have situations like today, shame on you. What happened to the Hypocratit Oath.
