More ops cancelled2nd June 2008
Statistics have shown that more NHS operations were called off in England "in the first three months of the year compared to the same period in 2007".
A total of 16,800 operations were called off, increasing from 14,600 in 2007. The hospital with the highest number of cancellations was Leeds Teaching Hospital, with 539. Professor John Appleby, chief economist at the King's Fund thinktank, said: "Overall the trend is that the number of cancellations is coming down...but the variation between trusts across the country isn't good."
