"Poor oupatient support"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

I received a letter from endoscopy asking me to contact them within 14 days to book a procedure and that is what I did! When i called them I was told that they were short of staff and she was not able to provide me with the appointment;i was asked to leave a tel number so that someone would have contacted in the next few days. What a shamble this is . You also ask below but the endoscopy department is not listed!
