"Bloods at MRI"

I think the NHS is FANTASTIC, the 8th wonder of the world. However, I do have a small gripe (and I do feel bad about moaning about it) but I think its more of a management and resources issue than anything else. I have regular 3 month appointments at the MRI to manage an chronic bowel condition. Because of the medication I'm on I'm required to have blood tests at each appointment. Sometimes these can be very smooth, however its not unknown for the wait to be as much as 1. 5 hours, which in addition to the 45 minute wait for a 10 minute appointment means I am often spending the entire afternoon in the hospital for a 10 minute consultation. (I don't really want to moan because I know the staff do their best and are wonderful) But maybe a detailed, honest explanation of why the wait needs to be so long could be printed and posted on the wall next to the ticket machine where you get your number?
