Response from Eloise Clarke, Communications Manager, Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust We have made a change

This issue has been resolved thanks to the comment on Patient Opinion which highlighted the problem.

This was an error as it seems there are two patients with the same name. 'Retiredsparky' has been kept informed of the process and his mother is now on the waiting list and will have her pre assessment soon.
