"Food table left out of reach at Bolton General"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I had a hysterectomy on M1 at Bolton General. I thought that some of the staff were great, but I think that they should not send you home well too early and then you come back in longer with complications.

I felt upset by the actions of one of the auxiliaries. I could not eat for 12 hours and then when I could I was left without water. For 4 hours my food was put on a table 2-3 feet away and I could not sit up or get out of bed I had to struggle - I was very upset.

I would like to thank the M1 staff, especially Cath, the matron, she was absolutely fantastic, caring, understanding and she does her job the way it should be done - the proper way!
