I am waiting on surgery and it has been over 6 months and the hospital have said that my surgery date is not even on the horizon. I asked if I am covered on the 18 week rule and they said yes but that they are not meeting that target.


Am I right that I can insist that they pay for me to have the surgery privately?

We don't have the 18 week rule in Wales but there's an excellent guide to it here:




In my own experience contacting the consultant's secretary and making sure they know you're happy to be seen on short notice usually works well. I recently got the 'call' on the Tuesday afternoon and was in theatre on Friday morning after someone cancelled.
