"Was told to come back for another appointment"

About: St Peter's Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

Had a ct scan booked for 08: 40. arrived at 08: 20 to read paper. Listened to the ct scan people talking in the office till 09: 00 when they started seeing patients. Had to wait for another half an hour to be seen.

Layed down on the bed for my ct scan when told that I require an ultrasound and an injection of dye in my knee before I can have my ct scan and told to go away and await a phone call for another appointment.

I had to take the morning off of work for this appointment and the wasted £3 in the car park.

Furious is an understatement.
