"A morning and 52 miles of travel wasted"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

The clinic for the appointment at "Clinic 2" had no consultant available so the visit was useless.

The next appointment is now in September at Telford.

A morning and 52 miles of travel wasted.

Response from Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

I am really sorry to hear about this. Without knowing the date of the clinic I am sorry but I am not able to confirm the reason for this, but this can be for reasons such as sickness absence with no alternative consultant being available. Since your appointment was cancelled I would encourage you to contact the PALS office at the hospital to discuss reimbursement of travel expenses.
