I recently visited the Outpatients dept to see a vascular surgeon. Firstly trying to find outpatients was a nightmare, I ended up parking somewhere far away and then having to traipse through a tired looking run down hospital that had broken beds and dim lighting. I wasn't even sure the wing I went through was still being used. There were no staff to ask and it looked derelict. Then I had to wait over an hour to see a consultant (as they were running late - even though the notification TV said 20 minutes wait) to then have a 5 minute consultation with the consultant, who has recommended me for scan that I will have to wait another 2 weeks for. When I got back to the car I then had to pay £3.00 to park as I was just over an hour there. Totally ridiculous.
