The operator reads out the instructions, but the daughter asks for these to be sent in the post to Mrs Bevan. 5 Any to Any
Patient rearranges the appointment One week before the appointment, Mrs Bevan’s daughter is told that she needs to go away on business the following week. She telephones the Appointments Line again and, with her mother’s agreement, re-schedules the appointment for a few weeks later. 6 Any to Any
