"Not enough time"

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

Having recently been diagnosed with Diabetes 2, I attended a one to one with a dietician at Newfield House. Whilst the dietician was very nice on entering the room I was told I had twenty minutes. In between several stages they checked their clock. I thought this was inappropriate and didn't give me enough time to ask more about diabetes.

I declined a follow up appointment. I don't want to go and have everything time checked. I will read about it myself and look for information on the Internet.
