About: Heartlands Hospital

Not actually a walk in centre at all despite coming up as such on an online search! Badger unit which u have to call and book an appointment - thats why im not seeing my gp as im afraid illness doesnt always come with a prewarning! Was spoken to like I was an idiot by staff on duty so not impressed at all. A total waste of time- off to solihull to see If I have more luck there!
