"twice cancelled my appointment for colorectal surgery"

About: Ipswich Hospital Suffolk PCT

(as the patient),

My first appointment was in mid october, it was cancelled and rebooked for mid December. 3 weeks before it was cancelled again.

When I called to Ipswich Hospital to ask what was going on, they said the appointment had been cancelled by my GP.

I went to surgery and I asked the receptionist why it had been cancelled. After she'd spoken with someone on the phone, she told me that Ipswich Hospital had cancelled it.

My next appointment will be in late January.

I'm just wondering what is the truth, and why it's been cancelled?

Also, why do they keep on playing from one side to another side and all this time, I'm suffering.
