"Urgent appointment - Cough and voice problem"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I found the long waiting period somewhat stressful as patients and partners/friends were coming in, who couldn't find chairs to sit on. If you stood up to use the toilet, someone would be sitting in your place when you got back. Staff were lovely and the doctor was very calming and pleasant during endoscopy, and open re: my worries.
