"Unhappy with visit to West Mendip Hospital"

I went there to West Mendip Hospital to have a foot X-ray last week.
I had to remove a dry dressing on my ulcerated toe first (why? - X-rays can penetrate clothing) and afterwards was sent to Minor Injuries Unit. I was informed that they had no record of me on the database although I was there a few weeks earlier. No wonder people complain about inefficiency in the NHS - there seems to be no joined up thinking.
The next time I need a dressing, I will purchase some plasters from the nearest supermarket and apply them myself.
What is needed is the patient's observations to be noted.
