I don't have a problem with over/under spends and cutbacks, etc - that's the world we live in. What I do have a problem with is my wife going in for a pre-op meeting this morning (operation due on Monday 3rd Dec), being told all is going ahead as planned, and then receiving a phone call at 14:00 telling her it has been cancelled! It shows a basic lack of respect in how they are treating their patients. People worry about operations and to have been steadily building up to it over the last 2 months and then to face a potentially lengthy wait for it to be rescheduled in January is just unacceptable.
