"Getting tested"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

On Friday 25th September suffering from anxiety through an unwanted liaison I telephoned 111, which led to a subsequent visit to my GP. On his recommendation this was followed by a visit to the Baltic Road clinic on 2nd October who redirected me to Lansdowne Road clinic in Tunbridge Wells. It was there that it was suggested I make an appointment for 3rd October at Pembury Hospital by `phoning Maidstone Hospital on the morning of 3rd October, which I did. I left an answer phone message which was answered at 12.22 advising me to phone on 7th October to try for an appointment on 9th October. My GP advised that I get tested ASAP and all I seem to do is go round in circles.
