My mother was in Stepping Hill hospital for two weeks, prior to her death there on 21/02/2014. For twelve days I was given no information at all about her condition, treatment or long-term prognosis. As a consequence I had no idea she was so unwell. Only when she became very ill did they decide to contact me, asking me come to the hospital urgently as her condition had suddenly deteriorated (this in spite of the fact that on my regular afternoon visit to her she seemed in reasonably good state and no one appeared at all concerned for her health). I arrived 15 minutes later to be told she had died. The fact that they left it until she was almost dead to contact me has left me devastated. Shame on you all.
