...so you have to ring them at 8.30 sharp and hope they have appointments. I rang them a number of times, and of course theyre going to be busy, so I walked to the surgery only to be told that there were no appointments left. that was at 8.45. Although this system may suit the adminstration staff at the GP, they clearly are an inconvenience to the patients. Should something be done to stop this ridicilous appointment booking system?
