Six million people are on an NHS waiting list
Six million people are on an NHS waiting list - one in nine of the population, according to a report on the BBC website. Health Secretary Sajid Javid said this number would probably increase, with demand expected to rise now Covid pressure was easing. He also set out plans to reduce waiting times for cancer treatment. What is your experience of the NHS waiting list now now and before the COVID pandemic?
I am listed for 2 operations. This was done in June 2021. I should have had a procedure yesterday but it was cancelled 2nd time due to staff sickness. I have been advised due to Covid I cannot have steroid injections due to the risks
