"Wait Wait Wait"

About: Northern General Hospital

Anything else?

Operation for hip replacement postponed again! Another 2 weeks wait. I've not seen my consultant surgeon since 11th Sept. I don't blame the orthopaedics dept, but people at the top who don't give a fig about the patients themselves so long as they meet targets. Well, you've failed this target.
