About: Conquest Hospital

So I'm sat here 50 mins after my appointment time in cardiology still waiting to see a doctor for my 1600 appointment no one else here, no one else about. This is the worst service I've received from the conquest they are normally very good. I'm thing of going home. Disgusted
