About: Wansbeck Hospital Wansbeck Hospital Ashington NE63 9JJ
I have just received a copy of a consultants letter after seeing them on December 10th 2012. At this time the clinic was overunning, as they do sometimes, by a considerable amount of time. I asked a nurse how long I was likely to be as it was now 10.50and my appt was 10.10 and no-one had posted on the board that the clinic was overunning, she told me that it was by 20 mins?? I have, as I said, received my clinic letter, a copy of which has also gone to my GP, in which the connsultant says I was 'perturbed' about the wait and then goes onto explain about the paitents previous to me and their diagnosis. Apart from the fact I was NOT 'perturbed' I was merely asking why when they have the board to keep patients informed, were they not using it ? - what has [ if anything] this to do with my GP may I ask.?
