Waiting in the waiting area are ten or so people. Mostly they have come to get blood tests. The sign by the ticket machine reads 'if you have an appointment please do not take a ticket but wait to be called' but people take a ticket first, then read the notice. I don't read my book, but just sit clutching my form, because I anticipate being interrupted at any moment. A nurse says it is going to be a while as I am the last appointment and suggests going for a coffee. I wait an hour and forty five minutes.
