"Would like to have met my surgeon"

About: Worthing Hospital

Although I can't complain about my treatment or surgery I was told I would meet my surgeon before I went to theatre to discuss what was going to happen . I never saw them before or after my surgery . I think this is very wrong, someone treating you for breast cancer and never meeting them.
