"The clinic was empty, I was expected, ..."

About: Northern General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The clinic was empty, I was expected, there was no waiting.

What could be improved

I think I could have had a telephone consultation rather than a visit which took me most of the afternoon It took nearly half an hour to park my car and I saw the doctor (without exageration) for approximately one minute. The only examination was an observation of my walk from the door to the chair, 3 steps, and a brief conversation concluding with if there is a problem I can go to my GP and be referred.

Anything else?

Are telephone consultations used?
