About: Royal Free Hospital

(as the patient),

Anything else?

Hospital appointment system is in a big mess. After visit to A&E my wife's followup appointment was booked with fracture clinic instead of skin clinic. I was given an appointment for diabetic eye test but when I turned up I was told that no appointment has been made.
