"No communication between doctors."

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

I stayed on ward 3 of the Manchester Royal Infirmary Hospital and I was treated for a pneumothorax. The nursing care was excellent. Communication between doctors could have better and if I could have seen the same doctor all of the time, not different ones it would have made it easier for me. At one point I was told that I was having a drain removed. Prepared for the procedure and then just before it took place it was stopped. No communication between doctors.

I also had Cellulites in my left arm, treated with antibiotics. The doctors were indifferent to this. In my opinion, it was caused by the needles in the hospital.

I would like to thank the nursing staff on ward 3, especially Martine.
