"Why am I still waiting for my hip revision?"

About: Northern General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

It was agreed on the 25th September 2008 that I needed a revision hip replacement.

Today 17/04/09 with my op scheduled for the 22/04/09 the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield have cancelled it.

Why is the NHS pushing this total drivel about patients receiving the treatment they need within 18 weeks, when I have now been waiting 28 weeks and counting?
