"Disgusted"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

I am disgusted that North Manchester general are allowing the prison service to take up a bed for an able bodied prisoner, claiming it makes their life easier as it is a locked ward! The prisoner is verbally abusing other visitors, staff and his guards, who seem to think his behaviour is amusing. Families visiting the intensive care unit cannot even use the family room as it's taken up by prison officers filling their faces with food. Intensive care beds are for patients at risk, not for someone who has had a good hiding in prison and who can shout, scream, abuse and walk abosutely unaided! Shame on this trust! There are no available beds now, means your relative could have to travel further! Manchester evening news contacted.
