On the 08--9-2014, I had to go for a blood test and after work rushed to the hospital walking into the main reception at 13:57, just as I was heading to the door for the unit a member of staff appeared and closed it, then turned out the lights. I spoke to the reception and asked what time they close and was informed 14:00. I replied its only 13:57 now and was told to go in, I walked into the unlit room and went to the door on the opposite side as I could see the member of staff who had just turned out the lights standing inside. I knocked on the door and after knocking a 2nd time the member of staff looked up and told me were closed. I replied it's not 14:00 and the member of staff came to the door, opened it and again said were closed. i explained it was not 14:00 and the member of staff looked, the 14:00 news has come on and looking at the clock behind me said the clock said 2, yes it would say 2 by now 3 minutes had passed. I'm very annoyed as I have no chance to get to the unit now until over a week later. If you state 14:00 then at 14:00 I expect the doors to be closed but not at 13:57.
