"Differing opening hours"

I attended the minor injuries clinic recently in the evening. The hours of the Minor Injuries clinic are shown on the website as “0800 to 2000” with the x-ray times being “0830 to 1800”. I missed the different times for x-ray and had to return - annoying when you've got an injured foot - that could have been made much clearer. More fundamentally it’s just silly to have different hours. Many patients will need an x-ray. Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful, the practice of shouting people’s names from ten yards away didn’t give a welcoming introduction. It’s not too much to ask that nurses collect their patients from the waiting area.
