"Treated For Bells Palsy 5/10/2014"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

Well three weeks ago I woke to my horror with my face and mouth all dropped to my right side. My eye didn't blink. So off to Macclesfield A & E. What a brilliant service and care I got. The doctor and Nurse from coming in to going home were A1. Told me it was a condition called Bells Palsy and gave me the steroids that was needed within the first 72 hours. I am convinced that there fast and helpful service means that I am now recovering every day and after 3 weeks a very good improvement. Made me feel at ease as was quickly told it was not a stroke. Thanks again brilliant service hope not to see you again to soon. Chris Worthington.
