"Multiple appointments for eye condition"

Over the last six months or so I have visited this hospital and probablly a dozen occasions, taking my father-in-law for cataract treatment. On every single instance, irrespective of the time of day, his appointment has been late - on one occasion they had even forgotten he was coming and said we were wrong, until we produced the letter they had sent ! We then had to wait for the consultant to come back from dinner.
They have run so late that every single time we have had to pay the car parking charge for 1-3 hours even when it was only a twenty-minute appointment.
We also repeatedly have appointments made for Boston in spite of Grantham being much closer and capable of fulfilling the requirements most of the time, even when on the instructions of the consultant we specifically request Grantham.
