As a result of the loss of the 18 week target for non-urgent surgery, IMO older people will suffer disproportionately. The number of knee, hip and cataract operations will be slashed and people will be waiting much longer for their operation. Whilst waiting, some will endure pain, all will have a reduced quality of life, reduced independence and so on. I wonder what sort of outcry we might expect or what outcry we may make ourselves? Or should we just accept it as there will be more money for cancer treatment and better A and E care?
