"Lengthy wait for a scan"

About: The Princess Royal Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

Yet again we faced a lengthly wait for a scan and appointment with a doctor, not good for heavily pregnant women.

A sign greeted us this time saying there were 41 patients, 3 doctors, 2 midwifes, and 2 WSA's, with waiting time 60-120 minutes.

This is for an appointment based clinic, not a drop-in centre where attendance can be variable, why could one of the receptionists not phone and advise that the clinic was running late?

However, Karen the midwife was lovely.
