"Don't go here"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

Anything else?

My first review was 'rejected' as 'not enough detail' was supplied. So, how about this? 1. Left with crying baby in A&E and was told we'd been booked in. 2. 90 minutes later enquire at reception to see wed not been booked in and our file still on reception counter . 3. Response given was "oh yeah" " someone put that there but I don't know why" 4. Referred to maternity ward where we are given drugs breasted feeding mums should get 5. This is after explicitly asking and telling staff that's wife us currently breast feeding. 6. Wait 4 hours for meds from pharmacy in order to be discharged 7. After 4 hours discover at home we've been given (and now taken ) somebody else's meds. This is only the highlights I wouldn't take a dog here.
