I recently went to the doctors about a non life threatening thing which required bloods to be done on a certain date. As a working person it was not possible to reschedule my commitments. I was told that I had to be there before 3pm otherwise there was nothing they could do. I asked if I could nip into one of the sheffield hospitals as I work in Sheffield but "oh no, it has to be doncaster". I replied that I couldn't be in doncaster at the times stated and was told "Well what can we do, if you want it done thats the options". How is it fair that anyone who does not have to be at work during business hours can have access to anything they want yet those of us that are funding the establishment by working struggle to get seen in the first place, struggle to get the investigations and struggle to get further appointments. How can an organisation like this be so inflexible. It beggars belief.
