Waiting List to Nowhere?

There was a shocking story in my local evening paper recently about an elderly woman who had been waiting for a hip replacement for thirteen years. Thirteen years!

This story raised a dust storm. When hospital records were checked it was revealed that her name had been taken off the waiting list without her knowledge!

Last evening there was a further development reported in the newpaper. The woman is to have her hip operation – pretty damned quick!  Isn’t it wonderful what a bit of adverse publicity can do?
