"family planning"

The family planning clinc have changed there walk in clinc for repeat prescription of the pill to a pre book only appointments with a two week waiting time. This is not on the web site and has only change due to them being short staffed. When i tried to explane that i could not attend the only non pre booked 10.30am as I worked, the person became very rude saying I could only have that or wait two weeks. I said two weeks would be too long. They rudely told me to use condoms and stop leaving it so late or go somewhere else. There was no reason for them to be so rude and abusive. Will not be going back there.
