Response from Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust

Dear P Powell

We're sorry to hear of the distress caused to your son because of the delay to his surgery. We are treating over 90% of patients within 18weeks (the national target) and there may be clinical reasons why your son's surgery hasn't happened within this timescale but without knowing the details it is difficult to say for certain. If you would like to contact our Deputy Chief Operating Officer joe.chadwick-bell@sash.nhs.uk or her secretary on 01737 231701 she will look into your son's case.
