"Yet another admin blunder"

I have recently received a letter from the Endoscopy Unit at Victoria Hospital for a colonoscopy - which I had already had. The package also contained the relevant information plus the laxative preparations.
2 days later I contacted that unit and straight away, as soon as I gave my hospital number, it was realised that a mistake had been made, and the appointment should have been for an endoscopy.
I am highlighting this because this is the second time such a thing has happened to me in recent months and I understand from 'internal sources' that this type of thing is happening all too frequently.
