What could be improved

1 if the named consultant isn't going to be there in clinic why wasn't I phoned first so I didn't have to have a wasted journey to the hospital in the first place.

2 Why is it I was palmed off to the regisra they said they couldn't help me and told me to leave I had to wait to see the named doctor

3 with means coming back another day witch means loosing another days pay at work im so not a happy patient at the moment so I spent bus fare money that so shouldn't have happended
