Response from Alison Moss, Feedback Manager, NHS Tayside

I am sorry that you are experiencing a lengthy wait for an operation. Unfortunately, as a consequence of unprecedented numbers of patients requiring emergency admission to hospitals within NHS Tayside, the Orthopaedic service has had to cancel planned surgery for patients resulting in unavoidable delays. Please be assured that plans are being developed to manage the backlog and reschedule patients in accordance with clinical priorities.

Kind regards.

Alison Moss
