Re Run 4. wasted trip to gosford specialist

A  Ninety Km round trip for Nowt.

Today was to be a trip to the Gosford Hospital for ongoing treatment for my xxxxxx problem. not currently life-threatening. The ninety km journey itself is harrowing enough, particularly travelling through Gosford, NSW, which can be described as the largest car park on the Central Coast.
On arrival at the ambulatory dept, I was informed that I was not scheduled for treatment today due to a viral infection showing up in my system and when it clears my treatment will continue. I then asked why was I  not informed last Tues when the problem arose. I was then told  I was by telephone. Which turned out to be untrue as no record of the call was found.
I informed them, in future I would ring prior to my expected appointment to save wasting my valuable time and money, having to get up early and shave and shower out of season whereas I could be in my best rural rags and pottering around with manure and stuff in the garden. It seems a shame to waste a shower and shave, so I shall turn to look after things clerical I have neglected recently.

Back soon..... Vest.....Quote: A crow is no whiter for being washed.

I resent (so much) the assumption by the medical professionals that their time is worth the megabucks they charge and ours is worth nowt.
