"Waste of my Time!!"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I was referred by my GP for surgery on a painful leg containing stage 1 varicose veins. I chose Bolton because I assumed I would be treated quickly. Unfortunately I was made to feel as if I was wasting the Doctors time and told that I didn't need any sort of help from them. To make matters worse I was told to return to my GP and get some cream to rub into my veins. I'll never visit this Hospital again what a joke.
