"i have attended the hospital this ..."

What I liked

i have attended the hospital this morning for an extracttion after waiting for six months .

i was sent an appt in may , got there they said it had been canceled i got no letter to that affect . this morning i was due to have extraction and was told they really didn't want to do it , this mainly was because i am a very bad phobic . six weeks ago i saw someone at the chemists who had written on my appt letter that i was supposed to be given sedation in tablet form. i was then told they are not stocked there. even though the dentist i saw at the chemists said they would give it me there.

consequently because i was so wound up i left with an appt for a few days time. i can honestly say do i want to go back ? definatley not !

What could be improved

some who was going to pull my teeth out having been told it was plastered all over my appt letter i was to have a pre med
