"Blood tests after chemo"

About: Victoria Infirmary (Northwich) / General medicine

(as a relative),

At Northwich Infirmary (VIN) Mum and I had been waiting for blood test. The kind nurse who was doing it informed us that we just needed to knock and put in the blood form, so that Mum wouldn't be sitting near others because her immunities might have been compromised by the chemo. Thank you for taking the time.
