"Hernia operation delay. 30 weeks next Monday!"

About: Wycombe Hospital

My GP at Wye Valley Surgery referred me to Wycombe Hospital for routine hernia operation around DEC.12/14 th . 2015.

Still waiting, after seeing consultant and complaining at 18 week point.

Told I would be put on the list. Either the consultant or one of their team would operate in about 6/7 weeks. Latest letter apologizes for a further 8 week delay, before a REVIEW only, of my case.

Total of 30 weeks now and counting.
