"Difficulty getting hold of the appointments department "

About: Manor Hospital

(as the patient),

I am sick to death of being put through by the operator. After a total of 3 hours 52 minutes, we have still not got hold of anyone to speak to. Right brassed off. This feels like such a waste of time. I would like Walsall Manor to be investigated, to show the truth about what a terrible service they offer!

Response from Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust

We're sorry to hear that you've had trouble getting through on the phone, this is clearly not the length of time you should be expected to wait to speak to somebody. We would like to investigate this. If you could possible call our Patient Relations Team with the time and date of your call, we can look into this.

Response from Manor Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns. It is not acceptable that you had to wait for that length of time to speak to a member of our team. I will ensure that your comments are passed onto the switchboard department and apologies for the service on this occassion.
