About: University Hospital Aintree

I am 16 years of age, I had MAP surgery done under the elective care centre and they told me I couldnt have anyone with me, so i had to go through this surgery on my own. On the day when I got there I walked into the waiting room to see that nearly everyone had someone with them. Why was I at 16 years of age told different. I cant fault the consultant though, he is one of the centres best consultant doctors ive ever come accross, ive been under the hospital all my life because I am blind in one eye, I have had endless operations, under alder hay and they discharged me because they didnt feel they could do anymore for me, I see this conultant once and he is on the ball straight away with all kinds of treatments and surgery he can do to help me. Brilliant.
