Lazy NHS Staff leave 72 year old with giant triple hernia on his stomach for 15 months.

Winston Baldwin was left to suffer for 15 months by NHS staff.

Shameful NHS bosses have apologised to a 72-year-old patient left with a giant triple hernia on his stomach – after his operation was delayed for 15 months.

Winston Baldwin is now struggling to even walk or go to the toilet after falling victim to lazy NHS staff.

He developed the hernia following a botched bowel operation in 2019 and was due to go under the knife at Crewe’s Leighton Hospital in February, 2020.

He said: ‘When I walk a yard from the phone to the table I’m out of breath – it’s just been getting worse.

‘I developed a small hernia in 2019 but had to wait six months for treatment because I’d just had an operation. I was then sent to Northwich and back to Leighton in 2020. And then lockdown hit.

‘The hernia has continued to grow and grow. They’ve given me a corset and I have constant back pain.

‘I’m just surviving now and it’s not good at all. I want to work on my farm, I just want my life back. I’d go anywhere for treatment from Madrid to Lagos.

‘I have been told an operation could be life-threatening – but this pain is life-threatening too.’

Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust runs Leighton Hospital.

A spokesman said: ‘We are unable to comment in detail about individual patients due to confidentiality reasons but would like to emphasise that we take any issues raised regarding a patient’s care very seriously.
