A copy of the open letter written by the FSSA which represents 15,000 surgeons was sent to Guardian newspaper http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2011/apr/18/nhs-cost-cutting-surgeon-warning.  It accuses trusts of letting down needy patients by branding forms of elective surgery as of limited clinical value in order to help them cope with the NHS's tough financial climate.

This letter must show the frustration that some surgeons feel in not being able to give their patients the treatment they need but what is more worrying is the patients on waiting lists suffering unnecessarily.
