"out patients oppointment"
Posted by jane clee
my appointment was for 2.15, arrived in plenty of time as we had an hour plus journey. had a coffee in the cafe and booked in for appointment at 2.00pm. the sign in the waiting area said if you were not seen within 20mins of appointment time to inform reception. i completly understand that doctors can overun in time but still sitting in a small hot stuffy full waiting area over 2 hours later is NOT acceptable. when complaining to the reception i was told "your next". another 20mins later i was seen. no real appology, just an afternoon of exhaustion. why cant patients be informed of delays, its only polite as we are expected to give notice of delays of cancellations.
