"Waste of time"

Anything else?

Damaged my hip playing sports and after 3 months it is still very painful and I am struggling to walk, so GP recommended going to walk in centre at Finchley Memorial for an Xray.

Arrived Friday afternoon at 3.30 so I did not have to take time off work and the waiting area didn't not seem busy however I was finally seen 2 hours later at 5.45. The 'doctor' said I needed an Xray but the radiography dept closes at 5 and will not open again till Monday so I should come back and try again next week and just make sure I arrive really early in-case there is a long wait and they leave again before I get seen. Can't see why someone could not have Xrayed me before seeing the doctor or at least told me not to wait rather than wasting two hours.

New building looks very modern and hi-tech but same rubbish service.
