"Appointment sent me to wrong hospital"

About: Crosshouse Hospital

(as the patient),

Having received a letter for an appointment at the Crosshouse Hospital I duly turned up only to be told I should be at the Ayr hospital as Crosshouse did not have the right equipment. This was after having been at Crosshouse for an hour and a half. I have since been to the Ayr hospital and now have to wait for a new appointment. I’ve always been seen at Ayr for the past 8-9 years and now find that I’m being messed around and it’s a waste of doctor’s time.
