I am 80 year old went attended Rochdale Infirmary at 1130 ready to have her cataract operation, only to sit there all day and the surgeon then decided they didn't want to do anymore operations so my mothers operation and another disabled ladies operation after waiting for 51/2hours!
What gives the surgeon the right to decide they no longer want to carry on finishing operations when especially the elderly are very frightened of attending hospital anyway.
My daughter had to take a day holiday off work to take my to the hospital and will now have to take another day holiday or unpaid leave for me to attend again.
Who is going to pay for this day the NHS wont pay for it.
Totally disgusted with how I have been treated
