About: Pinderfields General Hospital Pinderfields General Hospital Wakefield WF1 4DG
Not for the first time I have attended an outpatient clinic, arriving in good time, only to be left waiting for 45 minutes and then to hear that the clinic is running at least one hour behind schedule. Because I had to escort a relative to another appointment in Pontefract the same afternoon I had to leave without seeing the consultant and I simply could not wait anly longer without jeapordising another NHS appointment. It is simply not good enough. Not only did I have to take time off work for this appointment I also incurred petrol and parking charges.
