"I feel the staff simply do what they think they..."

About: North Manchester General Hospital

What I liked

Nothing. I notice you changed the name from Hope Hospital,to North Manchester General. Why? Is it because you felt the previous name raised expectations?

What could be improved

The attitude of the staff.

The consultant never looked at me once when we spoke.

The nurse kept referring to me as "love" and when taking blood it was in some sort of a store

room where the nurse taking the blood and another nurse had a long discussion about how unhappy they were regarding overtime payments.

Just like I wasn't there. Not paying attention to taking to blood, reading the paperwork - not just rude but dangerous.
