Blood test waiting times

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
Hi susieq

I live in a very condensed area, there are 2 hospital and 3 clinics that do a walk in service for bloods but unfortunately they are all heaving!

I went for a blood test last week just before lunch but I couldn't wait an hour and a half so I came home made lunch and had to go back for another 1 hour and 15 minute wait.

I also see that your GP's surgery offer all different services; ours offers nothing! Patients are also told to buy some medications and splints etc.... Our Drs are dreadful and they have been for years. I have heard so many people complaining due to this.

I think that some professionals see these benefit programmes on the television and think we all get £26,000 a year to live on, when many people like ourselves have struggled on benefits.

For people where I live the NHS services are dreadful.

Thanks for taking the time to reply susieq, we can learn so much from each other and it really does help.

Hi Stacey_1705

I see you have decent services at your GP's too and it does help.

I just wished that our Dr's offered these extra services too as that would keep the hospitals working more efficiently due to less volume.

I can but hope that things in this area improve.

Thanks for your reply Stacey, I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
