About: Leighton Hospital Leighton Hospital Crewe CW1 4QJ
I have much experience of many hospitals, Wythenshawe, Christies and Macclesfield. My parent was admitted to the PAA ward at Leighton late Jan 2014, I was horrified to witness two junior Doctors physically examining the infected leg without washing their hands before or after the examination. The health care workers all wore gloves! The nurse in charge of my parent was difficult to understand and saying sorry can you repeat that again was time consuming for her and embarassing for me. Thank goodness we were there, my parent is deaf. This ward was in disarray and not particularly clean. Ward 1 however was a completely different experience extremely well run by experienced, friendly and professional staff, the medical care and the attention received was excellent. At my parent's request I did not make a complaint at the time.
