"What a fiasco"

About: Burnley General Hospital

Appointment for an ultrasound in Area 7.

We did a tour of the hospital before we actually found the right place,. Information needs to be much clearer, the map on the web page doesn't mention ultrasound in this area just X-ray!

Fortunately we arrived early for my husband's appointment as it took 20 minutes to locate the right place.

Not very satisfactory when mobility is a problem and we had parked at the other end of the hosipital
