"I attended A&E after a bad fall resulted in pain..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

Anything else?

I was very impressed by the efficiency of the A&E Team and particularly the way they worked as a Team. The hairline fracture, which had occurred at my pelvis was not easy to diagnose and I had an X-ray;MRI Scan and CAT Scan in the course of the day. ( Fri 21st June 2013 ) The A&E Doctor; Orthopaedic Registrar and the whole A&E staff plus the X-ray Teams could not have been more helpful and I have now made a good recovery. Whilst waiting in the A&E suite both my wife and I were impressed with the hard work of the attending nurse who was constantly making beds, cleaning and maintaining a reassuring dialogue with a troubled patient. So- a big well done and thank you
