"Excellent Care"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

My Aunt was admitted from A&E having been brought in by ambulance from central Manchester. From the moment she arrived, she was treated with care and compassion, staying in MRI for 6 days and also experiencing two other wards during her stay. The staff were, without exception very kind and efficient, reassuring her when it was needed. When I called for updates I was always spoken to with courtesy and given accurate up to date information about her progress. Food was served hot, of ample quantity and variety.
