Just handed in a sharps box for disposal. Receptionist refused to take it, backing away as if I was HIV +ve!! In a loud voice "I will have to get a nurse to take that!" Nurse came out and took the sharps box but gave me a look like I was dirt. I AM NOT ON ILLEGAL DRUGS!!! I am prescribed EpiPens for a serious allergy that could be life threatening. The sharps box is for the expired EpiPens, and the only way to safely dispose of them. Do not think everyone with a sharps box is on illegal drugs, HIV +ve, or a hazard to your health!! I have never ever felt so humiliated in my life!!!!!! Disgusting attitude from reception staff. 20/04/2015
Very hard to get an appointment unless you phone as soon as they are open. Within the first half hour if you haven't got through you can guarantee no appointments are left. Not enough staff to handle the amount of patients that East Lynne Medical Centre cater for.
the appointment system isn't very good,especially if your told you have to queue outside early in the morning if you are really unwell,or have a distance to travel.
