"cancelled operation. bed shortage."

About: Royal Orthopaedic Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

Disapointed to have my hip revision cancelled at the last minute. Almost ready for theatre then called off, every one was talking about bed shortages is that right.

Response from Sally Xerri-Brooks, Head of Communications, Communications, Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Hi there,

I'm really sorry to hear about the cancellation of your surgery. It is always frustrating when surgery is cancelled, especially at the last minute. Without knowing your specific details I can't tell you why it was cancelled. There are many potential reasons for this. If you want to find out more though, perhaps you might want to call the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0121 685 4128 or email them on roh-tr.pals@nhs.net

Best wishes

Sally Xerri-Brooks
