About: Stepping Hill Hospital / General surgery Stepping Hill Hospital General surgery SK2 7JE
The surgeon and anaesthetist were professional and I was confident and pleased to be treated by them. The nurses worked hard to treat us with dignity and respect they were outstanding at their jobs and carried out their duties to a high standard managing to make me feel comfortable and relaxed at a very difficult time. Unfortunately this meant that after the surgery it was the nurses who had to pick up the pieces, after a cold, dismissive and vague overview from whom I believe was the registrar; they literally turned their back on me and walked out while I was trying to speak to them, leaving me at a complete loss, and whose judgmental, arrogant demeanour, and complete lack of interest in, or understanding of, what they were telling me actually meant in the context of my extreme poor health, left me in tears. I was left feeling confused, vulnerable and humiliated, as I'm used to being treated like the competent adult I am and am not prone to emotional outbursts - especially in public.
