The new care centre at Purley is not very effective .The minor injury unit opens at 14.00 but if you go and need an X-ray they can not give you one as the NHS unit can not use the X-ray machine as this belongs to the new care unit so you have to go to another hospital for an X-ray .Just because you have attended Purley does not mean that you get faster treatment else where you still have to sit and wait If the NHS has sold / rented the old Puley hospital to a private company why can people who need X-Ray not get it at Purley .Who paid for the X-ray machine it was the Tax payer but now the tax payer can not have use of the facilities it has paid for . This meant that after waiting at Purley because of an injury I was seen by a nurse who told us that my wife needed an X-ray but could not do it at Purley and we had to go to Mayday. We went to Mayday had to wait nearly three hours to get the X-ray . This idea by the private company that the NHS unit can not use the X-ray is stupid as this then wastes people time and also adds an extra burden to Mayday which is already full to capacity Please explain why the X-ray machine at Purley can not be used by minor injury unit
