"Pathology waiting times"

This issue isn't a rare occurrence.
I arrived before 8am, as do other patients.
I was third in the queue.
Then nursing staff walk in, jump the queue causing patients in the queue with tickets to have to wait longer.
I was finally seen at 9:50am. My blood tests are required before 8:30am due to medications. I know I'm not the only patient with this requirement.
I am wondering why medical staff can't be seen before public pathology hours or in a pre-arranged room for a period of time on certain mornings?
