Disgraceful under-usage of NHS operating theatres

See the Daily Telegraph article. Orthopaedics is the biggest offender: "In orthopaedics, the biggest specialty, just 45 per cent of "operating time" was spent on surgery, while 33 per cent of time was lost to late starts and decisions to stop work early."

I wonder if this is the explanation for my having to wait in unremitting agony for nearly a fortnight as an in-patient in the Northern General Hospital in 2007 with a very complicated fracture of the right humerus before the urgently-needed replating operation was done? The unconscionable delay caused me irreparable damage and left me in constant severe pain and in continuing need of home care which I would not otherwise have needed.
