    Only half an hour after my actual appointment time. Appointment I made over a week ago. How the hell can you be half hour over this early in the damn morning??

    Dr’s always seem to be badly run small businesses who dont have a clue who the customer is.

    Also, the customer does not pay for the service direct, so there is no connection between providing a good service to the customer / bill payer.

    Doctor in late, overbooked, appointments made deliberately early so patients are not “late”

    Or possibly an earlier customer took longer than the nominal slot due to a more complicated issue?

    “The probe” is a bit like nettle stings really (see appropriate thread).

    As for Picolax, I never knew the meaning of the word “clean” up till then.

    Yes. Exactly this… 🙄

    Seeing 18 (or more if squeezed in) people, most over 80, with about 30 combined complicated individual health issues, in 180 minutes, is an absolute piece of pi$$ isn’t it….

    My little plastic disc had a number 6 on it. If he’s 35 minutes over by 9:30, after 5 people (2 of which I saw go in and only took 5 minutes each), how much is he going to be over by the 4pm appointments!?! (not a real question)

    Oh and “the computer’s down” was told to every single person who came to the desk while I was sat there for my allotted 35 minutes (sorry, 45 minutes, I was 10 minutes early).
    No backup method of making/checking appointments?!

    It’s only going to get worse chaps! 8% of the GP workforce left/retired early last year… No one to fill those spaces..
    Enjoy the moan whilst there’s someone there to moan about 😉
