"Still waiting for surgery"

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital / General surgery Royal South Hants Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I am still waiting for my procedure that was meant to happen in November last year. I saw my surgeon end of July (1st and last time I have seen him) and since then have been passed from surgeon to surgeon. I am now over a year from when I was first referred to the Southampton General and am no closer now than I was then! No one can give me an answer -they all pass me on to someone else!! I am desperate to have the operation and have been in sever pain for over a year now not to mention the medication I am on!

In my opinion this has been the most useless hospital system I have ever encountered.
