About: Salford Royal

This morning my disabled husband has an appointment at physiotherapy at the Royal Salford The appointment was made over the telephone so no letter!

We have been unable to discover exactly where in the hospital the department is as the map on the web only gives colours and meaningless symbols!!

He has just left home as we are an hours drive form Salford - too early for the hospital information line. He does not walk well and faces a long walk from the car park and not being sure of exactly where to go in the hospital buildings. By the time he gets to the department I know he will be in severe pain.

I know it may be old fashioned but surely it would be easier to put physio, cardiology, renal etc on the map and save all this unnecessary anxiety!
