Due to my husband being in so much pain ( he can barely walk) we decided to go with the Cumbrian Clinic to have his hip replacement surgery done quickly, to date we have had 2 cancellations and the last one being Saturday gone, we were not informed until 6 pm the previous night but the voicemail was not picked up so we travelled nearly an hour to be told there was no beds available, bearing in mind this is a new hospital which I believe has no where near the amount of beds that the old hospital had !! How an earth do you expect to reach any decent goals when a patient who has been forced to pay for an operation still can not be seen, the funny thing about this is that whilst we were at the hospital we saw numerous beds that were empty,
