"Impossible to have lunch or a cup of tea"

I attended the physiotherapy department in February as part of a pre-admittance for knee surgery at 10am. I had a further appointment at 1pm in the pre-assessment department. Unfortunately there was no time between one appointment and the other so it was impossible to have any lunch or even a cup of tea.
I then had to attend the X Ray department and it was 3pm before I left the hospital.
This is too long for anybody without a break and I had left home at 9: 15am.
Perhaps the appointments could be better placed to avoid this happening and allow patients at least enough time for a sandwich or tell them to fetch food and drink with them.
