"difficulty in getting an appointment"

About: Victoria Hospital

This is just regarding the podiatry clinic - I am very unsatisified with the ability to get an appointment on a timely basis. I am also very unsatisfied with the diagnosis. It has made my problem worse and I'm having great difficulties in getting an appointment to even talk to them about it!

Response from Victoria Hospital

Hello Leslie We are very sorry to learn that you are unsatisfied with your experience of the Podiatry Clinic at Victoria Hospital, Deal. We have been advised that over the last month they have experienced staff shortages. They have a 2 week booking system and every Monday a new week's worth of appointments are released, however these do get allocated quickly.
