"Poor service for blood tests"

About: Queen Mary's Hospital (London)

You previously had an excellent service for taking bloods for out patients.

I don’t ever recall waiting more than 20 minutes before. However, waits of 1-2 hours are now standard. This change is inconvenient for patients and was unnecessary given you had such an excellent service before.
