A friend has had his scheduled operation for Colon cancer cancelled for the second time today (on the supposed day of surgery) due to lack of an HDU bed. Five surgeons were due to perform this whole-day surgery. Five Doctors had a day of their vital work wasted. The emotional distress this is causing his family and friends is disgusting. The financial ramifications for the Trust are mind-boggling. Not impressed.
