"Wasted trip to hospital"

I had been waiting for two weeks to attend appointment booked for the 5th of April. On arrival I am informed that the doctor had to go elsewhere and my appointment was cancelled on the 2nd of April. Extremely disappointed to say the least. Apparently a letter had been put in the post and I was asked had I not received it . at this point I was totally bewildered. Would I have taken a day off work unpaid, and wasted my time and effort travelling to Euxton ?
