"Very pleased with my care during a traumatic..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

What I liked

I was admitted through A&E for an emergency procedure, I found the A&E staff to be excellent, the SHO was amazing as were all of the nurses, in particular the one who looked after me, No one ever left me in pain or alone for too long and everyone was extremely kind and caring towards me. There is too much bad press about hospital staff and care received, so I think when things are good, everyone needs to know!

What could be improved

Obviously the ward is dated, as is the bedding etc, but no one says its was going to be 5 star! Bathrooms are not great, and there is never any sprays or cleaning equipment available. Everything just old.
