"No way to get in touch"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

Try getting through!

Tried calling all day through switchboard to get in touch with one of the departments

Attempted more than 20 times and no answer resulting in the appointment being a DNA.

This now will cause myself to be discharged and have to wait for a re federal off my own GP! Resulting in another long wait!

Appointment at 4pm and calling from 10 am no answer.

One word, appalling.
