About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

Went for some urgent blood test regarding an accident I had at work almost 4 weeks ago. Tried to chase them up for my results. I spoke to 3 different persons with the last one to reassure me that my GP would have the results within 3 days time. After that time, I called the GP and they hadn't receive anything. When I called back the hospital, another person told me that they can't send them unless my GP send them a fax with my details etc! The GP called them to ask about it and still nothing almost 4 weeks after. It's ridiculous to play with other peoples health issues. I am a health professional and I am disgusted.
