"Cancellations! I have been waiting years"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Anything else?

I had a nose op which should have been followed up in 4 weeks (it took about a year) a CT scan which took forever. I had to wait 6 month for the results which I still don't have as the appointment has been cancelled yet again and put back another 6 months. Although one of the cancellations changed the time by just 20 minutes (work that one out) I started the process with my nose when Oldchuch was open to give you an idea of how long I have been mucked about.

Response from Queen's Hospital

I am sorry that your appointment has been postponed. Unfortunately it is sometimes necessary to cancel appointments due to staff sickness, or a clinical emergency taking priority, but it is unacceptable for it to be repeatedly put back. If you would like to contact me through our PALS team on 01708 435454 or email PALS@bhrhospitals.nhs.uk, we will investigate what happened further. Yours sincerely Dorothy Hosein Chief Operating Officer
