"Long wait for appointment at North Devon, but staff lovely once seen"

I went to the North Devon outpatients to see a consultant. The clinic was running 45 minutes late. I really wish that I had been kept informed of the delay. If you’re anxious, waiting for an unknown amount of time makes things worse. However, once I was seen, the staff were all lovely.
I also feel it’s a long way for us to come to get to North Devon – I would like to use South Molton community hospital instead. I had been waiting for my consultation, and wanted an appointment as soon as possible. They called me to say they had a cancellation, and I could come for an appointment in 15 minutes – but we travel for 45 minutes to get there, so that was impossible. Then once we get to the hospital, the parking is stressful and expensive. If only they had more clinics at South Molton.
