Why do the addmissions dept think that they have more medical knowledge than the consultant and nursing staff! By this I mean that my consultant explained that I would need to go back after two weeks (from the op) and have a weight bearing cast put on my lower leg this was confirmed by the nurses and Doctor on my discharge , yet the appointments service (admin run) choose to completely ignore all of this and make an appointment for three and a half weeks after surgery why don't they bother to pay attention to paperwork from the medical people after all they are admin staff but as normal they are a law unto themselves. It is these people that waste NHS money and give the NHS a bad name.
