About: Broomfield Hospital Broomfield Hospital Chelmsford CM1 7ET
this morning we made the 30 mile round trip for a blood test. Needing to get to work at 9am (small business of two workers) we researched the department opening times and car parking charges (web site states £1 per hour), we arrived before the departmental opening time of 7am having first paid the minimum car park fee of £3. we joined a waiting queue of people, took a ticket, waited to be seen only to be told once sat in front of a nurse, we do not do that test before 9am! There was no explanation why, no way we could stay later, so in all a totally wasted journey at an early hour of the morning.
