I arrived in time for my appointment and was directed to the waiting area by a smiling, helpful receptionist. I waited for half an hour in a clean and pleasant environment before being seen initially by a nurse and secondly by a doctor, who efficiently diagnosed and suggested treatment for a minor concern. All staff seen were pleasant and efficient. I was very satisfied with my visit, thank you.
I would like to mention that, whilst the information screens are obviously necessary and helpful for waiting patients, the volume of the accompanying TV programme echoes around the high vaults of the waiting areas and makes hearing the nurses calling out names very difficult to hear. I do not have hearing problems but did find this difficult. I am sure neither nurses nor patients would want extra loud shouting of names so volume control on TV? ?
