I went to Ashton Under-Lyme Hospital with breathing problems. The staff were friendly, although the Sister at outpatients who took my details was a little bit bossy.
I drove but I recommend travelling by bus as the parking is terrible. It was also £3 for 2 hours - very expensive.
I checked in but my appointment was 20 minutes late.
In the waiting area I didn't like the programmes on the television. It was MTV, I am over 60 and didn't like it.
The female doctor was nice and explained everything. Said I had to have a chest x-ray, ECG and heart tracing. I was included in all decisions, everything was discussed.
I went back to the Hospital and had the treatment, everything was successful.
