"Ultra-sound appointment"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

On my arrival staff had difficulty finding a record of my appointment. The radiographer didn't say hello or introduce herself to me, wasn't friendly and demonstrated little empathy/sympathy for my condition. Despite being a new building the waiting rooms in particular and to a lesser extent the rooms used for ultrasounds are shabby/depressing.
