My appointment at Princess Royal Hospital (orthopeadic and fracture clinic) was at 11am in late June. The appointment was cancelled at 9: 15am the same day. The appointment was rearranged for the following day.
A very large clinic! Receptionist was very polite. She said that there was a lot of people to be seen. After approximately 2 hours, I was seen by Dr Fellows, a member of Dr Perkins team.
Dr Fellows apologised for the long delay. I was examined and asked plenty of questions. Then they sent me for x rays.
Receptionist came out and apologised to myself and a small backlog of people for the long delay.
Had my x rays of right knee, left ankle, very thorough. Finally went in to see Mr Fellows again, he said although x rays show severe wear, no action at this stage, he said to telephone Mr Perkins secretary if things get worse.
Total waiting time was 3 hours.
