"Always busy 8-12 weeks for an appointment."

They are always busy, I have to wait 8-12 weeks for an appointment. I have recently been sent a letter by them saying I need to see a doctor in regards to my blood test yet they have told me the earliest appointment available is after 2 months! leaving me worried and curious. My wife is 6-8 weeks pregnant and they told to her unfortunately we do not have any appointments, she has not seen a mid-wife yet and only recently been given a GP appointment. The staff is nice however they are struggling with doctors, the practice needs new management and they should stop taking more patients until they replace the doctors that have left. My previous surgery use to always have a 4-8 days appointment time. Town-field surgery is terrible and over crowded at the moment.
