"Waiting times for blood test"

When I've been to Stretford Memorial Hospital the waiting times for blood tests have been as long as 4 hours. Because the service closes at 12pm, unless you go at 6 or 7 am in the morning and wait for them to open at 8. 30 / 9. 00 am you have to wait.
The problem is that there's no place to wait either. There are a few steel chairs in a corridor which is ok if you're young. If you wait in the car you lose your place in the queue.
I'd suggest more opening days (it's only available 2 days at the moment).
Or couldn't dedicated nurses do blood tests at GP surgeries?
