"Difficult getting an appointment when I'd like at Park House for Podiatry"

About: Specialist services / Podiatry

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I don't understand why when you ring at 8am for an appointment in 4 weeks time, there is not always one available on the date and time that I'd like. I find it frustrating sometimes as I don't know how anyone could have booked all the appointments before me. I liked it in the past when you could book your next appointment on the way out.

Response from Nottinghamshire Healthcare We have made a change

As a direct response to comments received on patient opinion I am pleased to say we are currently trialling a new appointment system at Park House, Carlton which will run for at least 9 months. The new system started on the 9th September ‘13 and we have received positive feedback so far.
