"My operation cancelled"

About: Bunbury Hospital / Surgical Ward

(as a service user),

I would like to share with you my recent disappointing experience with Bunbury Hospital. After waiting months for an operation on my knees I finally had a date. I had arranged time off work for the operation, and my partner had arranged time off work to assist me in my recovery. 

Only to be called up at the last minute and have my surgery cancelled. This apparently was due to covid lockdowns.  As far as I am aware there are no lockdowns in our area and I understand other surgeries have gone ahead even though we had lockdowns. I still have two weeks of leave and would really appreciate having my surgery asap. I am in a lot of pain and have waited patiently for my surgery and don't think this is very fair.

Kind regards
