"90 minute journey - appointment cancelled!"

Referred by my GP to this hospital. After a 3 month wait for an appointment today was finally the day to head out on a 3 hour round-trip to Roehampton. Upon arriving the receptionist told me my appointment had been cancelled and there was no consultant available! Apparently "someone should have been trying to contact me" but of course no one had. I was then told the next available appointment would be in 2 months time. At that point I walked out of the hospital in discust. I am absolutely fuming. Not only have I taken a day out of work to travel 3 hours for my appointment but I now have to wait another 2 months. I understand the NHS is under strain but this is completely unacceptable. Alas... I am sure absolutely nothing will be done to make this up to me and I'll just have to suck it up :(
