About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I am an American who became seriuosly ill when I was over in England on a visit. I fell into a nine day coma, and was rushed to Macclessfield Hospital. There is no doubt in my mind that the staff of the hospital saved my live. I have the greatest of gratitude for the competance and kindness of the staff. I could not have received better treatment. On my return to the States I reviewed my British records with my US doctors. They all were in agreement that I had received the best possible treatment. Thank you.
