"Cancelled operation at Armadale Hospital."

About: Armadale Hospital / Operating Theatre & Recovery

(as the patient),

Operation cancelled as I was wheeled into theatre due to an emergency. Had been waiting for four years. After confirming that I would be put back on the wait-list again, waited another three plus years, and after contacting the hospital was told that I had had the operation and was removed from the wait list. After contacting the surgeon the receptionist said they were informed that I cancelled the operation as I did not require it?

I was told to see my doctor, get referred to a surgeon, and go on the wait list again.

So from day one until my operation, it could be 10 years.
