"Xray department"

About: Northwick Park Hospital

I went to Northwick Park today with expectations of long uncomfortable waiting, but I was wrong. The reception staff at the xray dept do their job well, so I was sitting down waiting for my xray withina few minutes, and told I would be dealt with in about 50mins. About 40mins later one of the xray technicians called my name and lead me through to the xray area, where they told to wait for one of the 4 cubicles to empty and then get changed. This is where things went a bit strange when a cubicle emptied and I went in. Just as I'm about to get changed, the door at the other end of the cubicle is opened, a dissapointed member of staff looks in and says dont bother changing and wait - isnt that what I've just done? Anyway, I wasnt the patient they wanted, so thankfully I eventually got seen to by the original technician who didnt care what their patients look like. Overall, not a bad experience apart from the strange xray technician and the extortionate £4.70 fee for 1.25 hours parking! like others have said, theres no xray choice for the dept you visited, so theres option but to say you dont know what you visited!
