"Time for Tea? - Left Waiting at York Eye Clinic"

About: York Hospital / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

Went to an Eye Clinic and waited almost two hours from time of appointment. Everyone who came after me was seen and I was the only one left in the whole clinic. Most of the doctors and even the nurses had gone for the lunch. No explanation, no apology even when I pointed out as a diabetic I wasn't feeling well and needed to eat quickly.

A student nurse tried to help and looked rather embarrassed. Doctors didn't appear to care.
