This is not a moan, because I still really enjoy my check-up, but I am interested to know if it happens to other people?
The London Ataxia Centre is excellent and I have been going for about 5 years now. Today was my annual visit. We have to travel for at least 3 hours to get there, and normally have the first appointment at 1pm. Today we did not get to see the doctor until 2.30. Last year (2011) we had two and a half hours' wait before we were seen. It is always at least an hour wait. By the time you get home it is a very long and uncomfortable day.
Do other people have such long waits before seeing the doctor at Ataxia Centres?
I 100% understand that they need you there and the doctors are incredibly busy and trying to see as many patients as possible but is there not some way of working out the timings to be a little more realistic, so you do not have such a boring and frustrating start to your appointment.
