"Confused by layout on first visit"

I found the whole lay-out very confusing. The main outpatients entrance is not clearly laid out. There have been portakabins erected in the way, so one is not drawn to the main entrance.
People coming to a hospital are usually stressed because of the reason they are going there. Directions need to be clear and simple. There is too much to take in if you are feeling anxious.
I don't know the answer but surely there are people who specialise in signage.
