"Just what I needed"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

I attended the department on 25th May 2016 from a referral from my GP whose knowledge of my condition was kimited.

I saw the doctor who gave me a full examination, requested a multitude of blood tests and gave me a preliminary diagnosis of two conditions not picked up by GP. The doctor's report was full and contained all their findings and recommendations. I was very happy with this visit and its outcome.

The staff generally were pleasant and professional.

I have never encountered a more jolly set of phlebotomists in my health journey!

Thank you for making the extensive blood draws painless and almost pleasant! Yours is the standard I now measure phlebotomists by. Not met any who come near as yet!

Thank you all for a stress free, excellent service.
