I attended Margaret River Hospital for my routine blood test, on this occasion there were many people in front of me for PathWest. It was obvious then, that many of these people had been waiting a while already.
During my wait only four patients were seen in an hour, in saying this, one was a small child. I understand that both staff may have been required to take the child's blood, I have been in those shoes so I get it! After waiting over an hour a staff member from PathWest came out and said, they were leaving to go to another practice and that it may be quicker to go there.
My blood test requires a medication trough be taken so normally I need to have my bloods taken at a prescribed time, so looking at the queue in front of me, I decided I would try my luck at the other premise. Unfortunately the queue was just as long, so I didn't have my blood test this day. I headed home, a round trip of over 100km.
If this is how busy PathWest is now in Margaret River maybe they should consider putting on extra staff in the mornings to cope with the number of attendees.
