"Lack of care"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

My daughter had her appointment cancelled at short notice and is having to wait an extra month for her treatment for chronic pain because a key person has gone on holiday. This is ridiculous! Why is there no-one else available? This clinic deals with people suffering chronic pain for goodness sake! In no other situations would this be possible.

Response from Scunthorpe General Hospital

Hello, I'm sorry to hear about this. A consultant did indeed leave but we have covered the gap with locum staff and are at operating at our full establishment. Thank you Sarah Mainprize
