"Wife's cancelled operation"

About: William Harvey Hospital

(as a relative),

My wife attended for a 9am appointment in general surgery, was prepped for the operation, and after two hours waiting was told that the surgeon was not qualified to perform the operation.

What a waste of time and resources. Third bad experience with this hospital.

Response from Julie Pearce, Chief Nurse + Director of Quality + Operations, East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for your feedback and I am really sorry that we cancelled your wife's operation at the last moment. This is not the standard of service that we would expect to provide. If you would like to talk with me further on the details, I will follow this through for you to ensure that all runs smoothly for the re-booking. I can be contacted on Julie.pearce1@nhs.net
