My experience as far as the blood test are concerned was excellent. I went just after lunch on Friday and was in and out in 20 minutes. As far as the complaints about parking is concerned there was no specific hospital parking at the old hospital. Altrincham has very good public transport and the bus and tram interchange is only a few minutes walk away. There are also car parks just across the road and behind the hospital, neither of them more than a few minutes walk away. I appreciate that some people have mobility problems but assume that was the case at the old hospital I appreciate that some doctors recommend fasting before certain blood tests are taken which means a large number of people prefer to go for tests as early as possible which is why there are long waits in the mornings. It was a pleasure to go into a nice new building instead of down a dark alley at the back of the old hospital.
