"Comparitve slowness of a System."

Posted by Elvis (as ),
last week I saw my GP. They recommended blood samples and an X-ray, and the blood samples were taken the next day.
I was told the results will be available the following working week. Can't complain there though I wonder why the weekends are sacrosanct when people get ill 24 hours a day.
My point is that I am not allowed even to ring up to book an appointment for the X-ray till the next working week. What sort of system is this in the 21st century. I would have thought a few clicks on the GP's computer should be sufficient to inform the appointments office so the GP can find out what is amiss and I can get well sooner.
