"Long delays in the fracture clinic"
About: Chase Farm Hospital Chase Farm Hospital Enfield EN2 8JL
Had a 10.55 appointment in the fracture clinic and was seen at 1pm. I understand there will be delays , but feel that patients should be given accurate information. At one point a nurse announced delays of 40 minutes, after I had already been waiting an hour. I also asked if i need an x ray before I saw the doctor ( I have a broken arm) was told no , only for the doctor to ask to see my x rays as soon as I sat down. More time wasted going to get x ray and then back to fracture clinic. Poor organisation. Otherwise doctors and staff were good - just need to sort the admin out.
