"Turned away with Choking Problem"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

Anything else?

Brought in by ambulance due to choking sensation, turned away on arrival and when we asked about the possibility of an X-Ray were advised "We don't want to expose you to unnecessary radiation - he obviously didn't know I'd never had an X-ray - Ever - I find this hospital obstructive and unhelpful - thank goodness for Oldham Royal, they have been superb and have indeed found a problem in my throat - Dont Go to this hospital if you can help it. - I'm nearly 40 and have experience of this hospital from being a child - it's always been poor - I hear continued experiences from family, friends and staff I know who work there and it's never good :-(
