I was sent to A&E by GP to have thumb infection drained. Some GP's do this themselves but apparently not mine. A&E were excellent and sorted it out. The dressing came off the day after, it was an open wound and after ringing gp, district nurses, going to Ashton walk in centre, who wouldn't put a new dressing on or even look at it as they had no time and neither did the district nurses in the same building, was told to go to A&E for it by my GP, a complete waste of their time but I had no choice. Whilst I found the hospital excellent, I live in Tameside and would add that its usually the elderly they don't look after. They've had that reputation for 10 years that I know of, and in fact my mum was terrified of going in there and chose to suffer and die from lung cancer at home rather than go there. So the good reviews are great but in fact its the elderly they are worst with and they don't tend to do reviews.
