I went down to Buckland Hospital today, some 20 minute drive for an Xray of my lower spine. When I arrived and reported at Reception I was told they are closed for lunch until 1330. I informed the lady that I checked on the website and it doesn't say anything about closing for lunch, After a brief conversation with her I left and as it was a nice day I sat outside for 45 minutes and returned. A different person on reception then who took my Xray form and told me the Xray machine was faulty and my Xray couldn't be done until the engineer had been out. I told him I had been waiting outside and couldn't the lady have told me this instead of asking me to wait until it opened. He then told me she was at lunch but I could wait for her to return to ask her, I declined that offer.
