I travel 250 miles round trip to Inverness. I was referred for surgery in October 2014.
I had one date in April 2015, cancelled previous evening at 17. 30. I had travelled.
Next appointment June 12th, overnight stay at Kyle court. Got to ward, ID bracelet, two anaethetists visit, BP etc, cancelled at 09. 10. No beds. I despair, it took me all day to travel home and unassisted 125 miles.
They cannot say when I can be fitted in yet again. As a consequence the admin boss said I should see my GP if I felt depressed by the situation and look to pain management techniques. Does she think I haven't tried all that? It is not like me complain but it has become beyond a joke.
