"Blood Test Waiting"

About: Hythe Hospital

I went for a blood test today only to discover a minimum wait of 90 minutes. It was hard enough getting an appointment before but since it returned to being walk-in, it has become chaotic. One man I spoke to has tried for two days running. I ended up leaving and will try in the morning. We need more nurses to cope with the numbers.
