"I was in particularly impressed ..."

About: Barnsley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was in particularly impressed by the canteen and the (cheap) early 90s'esque wallpaper in the maxi-facial department.

What could be improved

I attended Barnsley for an outpatient appointment about my tooth (that needs pulling out) I spent about 20 minutes getting parked up, then another 20 minutes waiting for my appointment (and x-ray) only to be told that the waiting list to have a tooth out is currently standing at about 12 months! - No mention of alternative options, no mention of pain management for the next 12 months, no mention of choose and book. All in all not overly helpful.

The consultant did seem very good & knowledgeable, it's just the other side of the waiting and car parking! - Shame the same effort isn't put into them as it is on the canteen!!!!
