"Poor waiting time"

A family member of mine visited the hospital in February and has since been waiting for angioplasty surgery. Six months later he his still waiting. He can't now walk, his leg and foot are extremely painful and swollen. After complaining to the NHS he was seen at the hospital on 12/8/16. After the driver test it was found that he has a 9" blockage so it was confirmed that he needs the surgery. Another week has gone by and he is in absolute agony. Surely he hasn't got to wait up to 18 weeks as he really ca't cope with the pain. He's not even eating properly now, the weight is dropping off him and with the effect it's having on his sleep, I don't think he can cope much longer.
