What I liked

From attending A and E with a broken arm on Fri.17th Oct. to my discharge from Physio on Tues.13th Jan.my treatment at Macclesfield Hospital can only be described as excellent. My injury was dealt with promptly, efficiently and sympathetically by all the A and E staff and much needed pain relief was administered immediately on my arrival.

Staff in the Fracture Clinic were equally efficient and, apart from my first visit, waiting time was minimal.

The friendly and professional physiotherapy team have been invaluable in helping me to regain mobility of my arm and I would like to express my gratitude to everyone for the treatment I received. It certainly could not have been bettered by the private sector.

What could be improved

As far as I am concerned, treatment could not have been better.
