"Read bad reviews but I had an excellent experience"

About: Altrincham General Hospital

I thought i'd leave a review as i've read so many bad reviews here and I had an excellent experience today. I was attending the drop in blood clinic, and I found the staff to be very helpful indeed and there was a lot of helpful signage up to let you know where to go. I only had to wait 35 mins which at peak time I was very satisfied with. I hate having my blood taken, but the nurses were all very friendly and i barely noticed the needle - it was overall one of the best experiences that i've had at a blood clinic.
