"Waiting 7 months for emergency appointment"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) / Oral surgery

(as the patient),

I waited 7 months for a so called emergency appointment to get a broken tooth out that the dentist had broken and can't get out.

On the day of surgery I was ill and was assured not to worry another date will be sent I have just recieved a letter saying due to the fact I was ill I have now been removed from the list.

My rotten root is poisoning me and I intend to take this further. I have paid into the NHS and expect treatment of a better standards than this.
