"Appointment with a specialist delayed last-minute..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

Anything else?

My wife has an appointment with a specialist, the first appointment at the hospital we got a letter the day of the appointment same that due to unforeseen circumstances they have had to postpone the appointment! I had already taken time off work and also arranged other appointments around this one so as not to completely lose the whole day. My wife had a follow-up appointment arranged months ago, the appointment was for this coming Monday and yet again due to unforeseen circumstances it is now be postponed per month this beggars belief and is unacceptable I have a game have to take holiday and arrange other appointments around this one says too late now to rearrange. If this hospital is so disorganised that it has to wait until the last minute to make changes then maybe this hospital should be one of the ones get close down and another one that is better suited to the needs of the patient somewhere else be opened!
