"My stay was 3 days longer than it should..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

What I liked

The television system was very good.

What could be improved

While in hospital, I picked up a tummy bug, but was sent home (I had not actually been sick at this time) even though I felt dizzy and sick. A few hours later I had to be re-admitted because I was so sick I could not take my medicines (for the pneumonia I was in hospital for). I feel that there should have been more stringent measures to prevent the spread of infection - at the very least antiseptic hand gel could be provided to be used before eating.

Anything else?

I was admitted to A&E, then A&E observation unit then MAU on Friday morning.
