What I liked

On 10th August 2007 I came to Macc suffering from a heart attack. I was very scared but the staff there cared for me excellently. The next day I was taken for angioplasty to Wythenshawe and had a stent fitted and was brought back to Macclesfield. I could not have had better treatment and help from everyone who works there especially those in the CCU. A year on, once again THANK YOU x

What could be improved

Staff wise everything was just right. Surprisingly the meals were good as well. Far better than Warrington or Runcorn. The television and lighting at my bed was faulty. It needed a bit more maintenance. When I pointed these faults out I was moved to an area with everything working ok.
