"Fabulous for the consultants – rubbish for the..."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Anything else?

My Friend who is a lady in her 70’s living alone and who does not drive required surgery; her first appointment was at Gosport which is a bus drive away the follow up was at the Queen Alexandra which is a bus then a ferry then another bus away.

The operation was at the Queen Alexandra, again bus, ferry, bus/

And now a follow up appointment has been booked at Fareham which is two busses away.

Whilst this may be fine for the consultants this is very complicated when using public transport.
