About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Following the last review about their experiences, I thought it only fair to leave another review to eliviate fears for future patients... Waiting time was less than 1 hour but no more than expected, staff very friendly and helpful, and the procedure itself was clearly explained, lasted for about 20 minutes and for myself was no more than a little discomfort. You can watch the cctv, should you wish! And would recommend choosing the Gas & Air as you can use this yourself if and when you need to during the procedure, but leaves no lasting effects afterwards, should you need to continue with your work, drive or drink. Afterwards, you are asked to wait approx 20-30 minutes on your bed to compose yourself before leaving, and was offered a drink and biscuits.
