Had a text to say I needed a routine smear when in fact I don’t need one for another year and I was not notified of this until I turned up for the appointment of which I was kept waiting 20 mins past
Testing for Diabetes etc,done at the same time as appointment so results are immediate.only improvement needed is the the screen showing patients name when called by the Doctor or Nurse – Too small
I felt extremely unwell and called at the Surgery on the off chance that someone could see me – it was almost lunchtime ;he said”I had the nerve to come out at this time of day and expect to be seen”
All staff listen to me, very helpful and always get feedback from any tests needed. And given a choice of hospital.
Doctors seemed unsympathetic towards mental health. I’ve not seen the same midwife twice, always different ladies. Appointments overbooked. Hour long waiting time.
