About: Wythenshawe Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Most of the staff where great, friendly and went out of their way to make my stay as good as it could be. They work under very hard condition for not very much in the way of pay.

What could be improved

Both Doctors and nurse need to try to get to known who their patients better. 3 time in casulty I had to tell the Dr's and nurses I couldn't have the drugs they wanted to give me. Also the Socail Worker lost my info. some nurses thought they kmew more than the Dr's one told me I couldn't leave my room as I had MRSA, however they Dr told me I must walk up and down the ward to help my BP. This should be in my record so there is no mix up, it wasn't.

Anything else?

The food is, well I can't put the word as it might offend you and I don't want to do that.
