"3 hours waiting for blood test."

About: King George Hospital

My brother who is receiving treatment for cancer has just had to wait 3 hours for a blood test before seeing his consultant after.

I find this totatally unacceptable waiting this long. He's not well enough to sit there 3 hours. Surely he should of been given priority?
