Due to Milton Keynes General not being registered to carry out Radioactive-Iodine treatment I was referred to Northampton General. At first I was happy with the service I received. But that changed today. With the weather being bad I expected some kind of delay but not as bad as it was...and the lack of communication was awful . After an hour of waiting we asked how much longer we had to wait...i was then told at that point that it would be about 5 more minutes, and the explanation for the delay was 'only one doctor running 2 clinics', which we were not told on arrival. Had we been told this on arrival we would've been more prepared for the hour long wait - which in fact turned out to be for one measley pill. What a waste of a morning for myself and my mother (who incidentally had taken the day off work to take me there as I do not drive). This I have to say is the worst waiting time I've encountered for an out-patient apppointment!
