"Need to know more about X-ray appointments"
Posted by Patientlywaiting (as ),
My GP at the Thorndike surgery in Rochester didn't know if I had to book an appointment so I phoned the X-ray dept and left a message but no one rung back.
After 2 weeks I decided to ring again and was told it was walk in and wait until 4 pm. So I drive & the car park is full and queuing up but I've taken time off work so I leave my car in the hospital grounds and the receptionist says 30 mins wait so no time to move car but all people waiting say they've waited for well over 1 hour, while one person said over 2 hours.
Feels like my stress levels are going up as just asked having waited 30 minutes told likely to be 90 mins wait but told the dept closes at 4. 30 ish.
We have got to know what to expect!
