"Maxillofacial surgery"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

My wife has recently been discharged from hospital having been treated for an acute dental abscess by the Maxillofacial department. For her first visit to A&E, she was treated with respect and care from all the staff from A&E to ward S2, and finally F9 ward. My wife noticed that although all the staff were very kind and caring, they seemed to be run off their feet, and as a consequence could be prone to making mistakes, although none were encountered while she was in the hospital. As a visitor I did encounter a problem in finding her ward, and found the signage rather confusing, and needed to ask the staff several times for directions, which were given willingly. Overall a good experience of this hospital and the care received therein.
