How do apointment systems work???

Arrived at The Churchill at 12:35 for a 12:40 appointment.  The consultant was running 40 to 60 minutes late.  However, they can give you a buzzer so you can go away and they buzz you just before your appointment.  So we took the buzzer and went to get some lunch.  Picked up a sandwich and got in the queue when the buzzer started to go, it was 12:40.  So we put the sandwiches back and went back to the waiting area, we sat down, waited 20 minutes and my name was called at 13:10.  Admittedly we didn't get to see Prof Hassan, just one of his team, but how the hell do the appointment systems work??????

Anyway, the doctor seemed to think everything is going OK.  They will probably cut back on my favourite, Vinchristine, as the tingling in my fingers is caused by it and doesn't go away after the treatment ends.  I asked if it was working and got one of those tactful and diplomatic answers that said we won't know for a couple of years.  The treatment is killing off my white blood cells like it is supposed to, so its doing what it should be.
