About: Stepping Hill Hospital

Anything else?

I was taken into this hospital and had comments made at my expense by the a&e staff. I felt bullied. The person that came with me to the hospital was also disgusted by the way i was treated. There was an elderly woman in the bay opposite me who was left shouting for someone to help her as staff walked past ignoring her. Disgusted.

Response from Cath Marsland, Head of Risk and Patient and Customer Services, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust

I am very sorry that you had such an experience and am concerned to hear what you both experienced and witnessed. I have forwarded your comments to the Head of Nursing for the department this morning and asked her to discuss your comments with her staff. Once again I am very sorry for what happened to you and hope this will not discourage you from using Stockport NHS Foundation Trust Services in the future as I genuinely believe this kind of treatment to be an exception to the norm.

Response from Stepping Hill Hospital

Thank you for your comments.

I sincerely apologise that these were not been responded to in a timely manner.

This was due to lack of administrative support at the time which has now been rectified.

I would like to reassure you however that your comments were forwarded to the appropriate teams for them to reflect and learn from your experience so that improvements could be made in the services we offer.

Kind regards

Patient and Customer Services Manager
