I am now week 3 after having my ankle fused Was really happy with medical staff at Wythenshawe Hospital - As I had other medical problems it was hit and miss if I could have the operation- so was kept in the loop by the booking clerk - had a quite few check ups at pre op, thanks to the nurse for all their help + support Like the way things are done now that everyone having surgery that day all go to the same place, you don't have to hang around a ward waiting for your time to go down to theater you can sit with others waiting for their op. Finally had the operation wasn't as sickly as I usually am after having a general anesthetic due to a great anesthetist who listened to me, Happy with the surgery so far as in less pain already - Thank you for your time and skill. I have no complaints about any staff everyone worked hard and did what they could in this day of paperwork over care - I felt like I was given the care and support I needed. My only complains about Wythenshawe Hospital are which I am sorry to state Car parking fee's £3 every visit, which I have had to pay as I can't walk any distance, doesn't sound a lot but as a single working parent on low wage it was expensive - the car parks are not even in a good state of repair !! don't know how you justify the charge. Food - porridge was stodgy packet ready break - packet soup - frozen soggy veg- plastic looking meat/fish everything apart from Jacket potatoes was processed - for a hospital promoting health care its disgusting, It would surely be healthier/ tastier and cheaper if food was cooked on the premises with local fresh food?? I had to get family to bring me in food for my 3 day stay.
