"Not able to have INR checked today"

Despite having an appointment today at the pathology lab I was turned away as the department was busy and apparently the phlebotomist were refusing to take blood from those with an appointment.
I have always experienced a first class service within the department which is why I am so disappointed with the service I received or more to the point didn't receive today. It has left me not able to have my INR checked until Tuesday which is causing me anxiety as I have a pending operation and need my INR to be in range for 4 weeks.
A simple phone call would have at least stopped me travelling to the hospital and wasting time and money on car parking.
