"Referred by GP for suspected DVT ..."

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Referred by GP for suspected DVT at 12.00 noon seen in hospital (1st) at 3.00pm

What could be improved

Bloods taken at 3.30. Finally seen by doctor at 11.30. Could have been asked to come back later rather than wait 8 hours

No refreshment offered apart from cup of tea at 4.00
