I have been rung the day before the 18 week target was about to expire and offered an appointment and, on 2 occasions, an admission for surgery the following day.
As I am still employed full-time within the NHS I cannot drop everything and attend an appointment at such short notice without affecting the care of the patients I care for.
I have therefore had to decline this then of couse means they meet their target as i have declined the appointment they have offered within the 18 week target.
I then have to wait a considerable length of time for them to offer another appointment.
