"waiting time orthopeadics friday"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

my appointment was for 11.seen at 1 by the consultant only to be told he needs to hurry up as he has a governors meeting to attend.i only spent 6 minutes with the consultant after waiting 2 hours. if the consultant knew he had a meeting to go to then why didnt he re arrange this clinic.also i was told i got to wait at least 9 months before i could have my other knee looked at as he wants the knee he did the partical knee replacement time to heal up. so ive got to suffer in pain again for 9 months.iam not happy at all
