"Disgraceful timekeeping"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

I would like to know why I had to go to the RSH for my appointment yesterday as I live in Wellington. I don't drive, and thanks to the extraordinary delay in being seen I was out for over 5 hours

My appointment was for 4:20 and I was not seen until an hour and a half after that time. No explanation was given while I was waiting and the clinic board said 45 minute delay

When I finally got out after 6pm,it was to discover that the bus service now only runs every half hour!

Whilst I appreciate there were probably valid and legitimate reasons for the delay, the lack of communication was appalling
