"some of the staff were ok."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

some of the staff were ok.

What could be improved

supply of my meds whilst on the ward was awful, no insulin was available,my painkillers were witheld, info about what was wrong was not available to me,incorrect diagnosis was given, and did not find out i had a heart attack till an o/pts visit several years later. refused my requests to see a diabetic nurse.discharged myself so i could get to my meds at home. no cardiac followup was given,have now requested via my gp to go to another hospital.

Anything else?

have had several bad experiences here,have complained to no effect, would never reccomend this hospital to anyone, and would say to people not to use this dreadful place
