"Genetic Counselling Appointment : worth the wait"

About: St Mary's Hospital (Manchester)

Very busy hospital, could not park any where near the front of genetics, even with a disability badge, had to park in multi storey across the road. Very modern and clean hospital. Sign posting very good, we found where we needed to go very quickly, Great services, shops and coffee shops. Reception staff friendly and the Genetic Doctors very nice and caring. Took time to listen and had students in with appointment. Would recommend this hospital and although there is a long wait for genetics I was not disappointed.
