"A&E and upwards"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

Anything else?

Hello, Very recently I had attended the emergency department of this hospital. This will be a short note, basically to thank everyone involved in my treatment, I was treated throughout my stay with care and professionalism, far from the media comments, regarding nurses who are "to posh to wash", I only saw nurses who where caring and committed. Again the media would paint the picture of individuals in agony left in A&E for hours, my experience was forget 4 hours I was seen in under 15 minutes, I had terrible abdominal pain, at no point did I think this wasn't taken seriously, the young female doctor in A&E was incredible, I didn't get her name, but thank you. I was transferred to ward 1 for and within the day had a diagnosis and treatment plan, including an alement for which I hadn't even come to the hospital about. Again my thanks to the doctor and his team. The nursing staff on ward 1 were equally exempolry. I can remember one the the names but it would be unfair to name, they were all equally amazing. I have every intention of writing to my MP with the above comments.

Response from Macclesfield District General Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to post this compliment on the NHS Choices website. I was delighted to read such a glowing compliment regarding the whole of your treatment when you had to attend the Accident and Emergency Department and during your subsequent stay at Macclesfield District General Hospital. I have passed your compliments on to the department and ward you have mentioned and hopefully the staff members concerned will know who they are as compliments are such a boost to morale.
