"disgusting care at this hospital"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

my brother alan is in word ward E1 . he has brain cancer and ward E1 is just a general ward . the treatment he is getting on this ward is shocking the staff have not got a clue what they are doing . We get told he;s had his meds then when we visit we get told he;s had none at all . My brother is dieing and they have not had him on his morfen patches for over a week they have been giving his asprin for his cancer pain . His doctor had told the staff on this ward to get my brother on all his meds so we thought he was on his meds and it turn;s out he was only on asprin for a week . It took my brother to tell them to get him on forfen patches as asprin is no good for cancer pain . God nose what sort of doctor he was . last week my brother has dificulty eating and drinking we were told he had not eat or drank anything for 2 day . again my brother had to demand they get him on a saline drip to rehighdrate him . my brother is not getting the care he deserves from this hospital . Care ward E1 staff would;nt know how to spell the word . Wnow intend getting my brother out of this hospital as quickly as we can .
