"I attended Macclesfield A&E ..."

(as the patient),

What I liked

I attended Macclesfield A&E after suffering chest pains. The nurses and doctors were all fantastic. I was transferred straight to Resus and the nurse dealing with me was extremely helpful although massively over worked.

The nurse had 3 new patients in the time i was in there but made sure she kept checking i was ok as i was her most stable patient.

I felt as if everyone on duty cared and although they seemed massively overworked and understaffed they were all fantastic and i felt as if i mattered to them.

What could be improved

More staff would be great.
