I had an appointment at the pain clinic this afternoon. There was a note on the information board advising patients that due to illness there was only one doctor working. I did not know whether this related to my appointment as there was more than one clinic running. After waiting nearly an hour I and several other patients were asked to go into the doctor's room and he advised us that he had asked for a member of the management team to come and see us but nobody was available. The doctor did not have enough time to see us all. I decided to go home. The nurse told me that I would be marked as attending. I feel that the hospital is only interested in meeting its targets.
