"Ultrsound Department/Cardiology"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital

I attended an appointment at the Ultrasound department,next door to Taylor Ward for an 08.30 appointment but the staff carrying out the ultrasound did not start till 09.00.So when I went in to have the wrong ultrasound done,the department was already running late.The department is dirty and more information from the staff behind reception would be a good idea.There is a lack of seats in the waiting area and the whole place needs sorting out.It is a terrible place to visit or be treated in.
