About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Appointment notification letter clearly states "For any queries relating to this procedure please phone Eye Day Case Unit on 02392286931. Open Monday - Friday 7.30am-3.30pm" Despite repeated attempts to phone between 7.30 and 8.15 Monday 27th August nobody has picked up. Is the letter incorrect?

Dear gdad

The Head & Neck Business Services Manager confirms that the information provided in the letter you received is correct. She explans that this is a very busy reception desk and the staff member may have been dealing with patients arriving for surgery.
