"My husband"

About: Trafford General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

Last august in the night my husband started shaking and making funny noises in his sleep I turned the light on and found blood on the pillow. I could not wake him and phoned a ambulance which took him to Trafford General where the doctor said he had a fit.

Never in his 77 years had this occurred before but after two hours he came round and asked where he was. The doctor then discharged him we had to sit outside waiting for a taxi. Nothing was done about a follow up and later that morning he had another one and fell down the step onto the stone path where he hit his face full force.

Again he was taken to Trafford General this time they admitted him and did test but this would not have happened if they had done that in the first place.
