Have had 2 lots of sessions over last few year - my wife 3 years ago and myself currently.
Our appointments have always been for about 9am or 2pm and we always arrive to find a room full of patients and then have to wait 2-3 hours. Our impression is that everyone has the same morning or afternoon appointments time - hence the long waiting times.
Whilst I appreciate that staff ( doctors & nurses ) time is valuable so they should not have to wait for patients, this system of ensuring a ready supply of patents seems excessive in the extreme. Patient time is valuable as well!
