"poor clinical management in the fracture clinic"

Anything else?

I attended a clinic last Monday morning for a prearranged appointment it was absolute pandemonium with the consultant himself sitting in the middle without a care this time we were seen 2hours 45 minutes late without a bye your leave or explanation at no time were we kept informed as to the situation on approaching the desk based nurse as to the delay she just shrugged her shoulders and said '' I've given up trying to predict wait your turn'' PALS were called but did not turn up why have an appointment system if there is no intention by the consultants ''happy'' team to keep the appointments
