On June 28 I was supposed to have an operation.
After two hours it transpired that I had been given wrong information at my Pre-Op Assessment.
I was told then to stop my medication one day before the Op when I should have stopped it three days before the Op.This error wasted time for me and, more importantly, for you and the NHS.
My Op has been rescheduled.
Hopefully the person who misinformed me has been told where they went wrong.
All the staff who dealt with me on June 28 were courteous, considerate and efficient.
It's sad that their professionalism was undermined by another's error.
