What is the average wait times people have experienced at public ante-natal clinics while waiting to see either a midwife or obstetrician?
What wait time do you think is acceptable?
I was waiting at a public clinic, I think for 45 minutes. I didn't think too much of it, it's free and I had my I phone to play with.
Another more heavily pregnant lady really ripped into the midwife on reception with "this is totally unacceptable having pregnant women wait for 45 minutes to an hour!". She had her hubby and 5? kids with her waiting (why???) and followed up with a "I keep telling you I can't make x o'clock appointments because of the kids blah blah." (Ahhh. Why accept the appointment then?).
Anyway I initially thought she needed to harden up a bit, 45 minutes-1 hour for free care isn't that bad. Was I just in a good mood? Was I being too harsh on the lady? Or does the other lady need to harden up?
