"appointment cancelled at Wythenshawe"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I've been recommended to see a hip specialist by two Greater Manchester hospitals and had a referral from my GP to go to Wythenshawe Hospital. I got an appointment for November 2014 but yesterday I got what feels like a very stark letter in capital letters saying PLEASE DON'T COME TO THIS APPOINTMENT, IT'S CANCELLED FOR CLINICAL REASONS. PLEASE DISCUSS WITH YOUR GP.

Now I feel like I've got to waste my GPs time on Monday.
