"Unbelievable stupid hospital rules"

About: Tameside General Hospital

Anything else?

The treatment with my father in this hospital has been full of false promises each time he has been in this hospital. He is in his 80,s with vascular dementia and is very distressed indeed. When he is in hospital he gets extremely distraught and it is hard to see him like this. I don't live in the area and am disabled and cannot get up to the hospital to see my dad, however the staff won,t tell me anything unless I go up in person which I have explained I can't do. However it dosnt make any difference. It's disgusting.
