"telephone incompetence"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

I called cardiology on the tel no listed on the website, got a voicemail, which put me through to another voicemail, then the operator who put me back to the original voicemail.

I did not have hypertension before I called, but I do now. WHat a useless system
