"Nothing, they were the nearest ..."

About: Tameside General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Nothing, they were the nearest hopital with a intensive care bed. I was unconsious an hallucinating most of the time.

What could be improved

Everything. Lost over a stone a week for 5 weeks. Terrible pressure sores. Contracted mrsa. Relatives told 3 times to say farewells. no apologies. Blame equipment suppliers.

Anything else?

To be avoided. Death rate above national average says it all.
