"Getting bloods done take a book, your going to..."

About: North Manchester General Hospital

Visited the ENT Department which I couldn't fault. However when I went to a little crowded room to have some blood tests done it was a less easier experience. I had to get a ticket and sit in a very small hot and crowded room and wait. The room was that small and the queue for bloods were that long people were filling the corridor outside. In total I had to wait 2 hours to have a blood test done. When I got on the room there were only. 2 nurses in there which I thought was a bit of a joke to be honest. It would be much less annoying if there was a bloods nurse for each department rather than have all the patients from each ward in the worlds smallest room, with the worlds fewest chairs.
