Tired of waiting
The follow message was originally sent to the Department of Health and Community Services:
We all hear of the great job government is doing with regards to wait times.
Well today ( June 4) my wife took an 84-year-old lady to the Health Sciences Centre for an 11 a.m. appointment only to see the sun again at 3`o’clock. Not good enough. People there from Nain were waiting even longer.
Not even a word passed on to them from the doctor’s office. Just a word could have given them time to get a lunch. After all, they drove from Clarke’s Beach. Is it too much to ask that someone waiting an hour after the appointed time be given a little information as to when they are likely to be seen?
Your government has a long way to go when it comes to wait times. If this is the norm, and people tell me it is so, then it’s something to ponder when you see people lined up at a waiting room at our healthcare facilities in the future.
