"Avoid orthopaedics"

About: King's Mill Hospital

So I was meant to see a Consultant today, what a joke. First after rushing out of the house at 8am I was told the Consultant was in theatre, fair enough so I agreed to see someone else. But they wouldn't have anything to do with me and told me to come back in half hour to see my Consultant. When I did the Consultant came into the waiting room and said they couldn't see anyone because their computer didn't work. I didn't think a doctor needed a computer to look at someone when their notes are in front of the Dr. Never again
