GPs told to refrain from referring to local hospital for three months


Perhaps it would help if like the suggestion for GP surgeries, hospital clinics ran from 8 to 8 including weekends? This would offer more care to deal with back logs and keep the system moving. Can someone explain to me why attending for a blood test requires the patient to sit in a queue for one hour plus? Why do all hospital appointments run a hour late? Hospital staff appear to belive that we must live our lives around them!
