About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

as with most Hospitals the Admin seems to mess up much more than is acceptable, it wastes so much of staff and patients time, and often means your waiting twice as long because of paper- NHS old fashioned system of specialists writing to each other with windy polite letters is rididiculous in the day and age of computers Second issues as in all again the food is so very very poor- NHS money wasted on rubbish suplliers
