About: Wythenshawe Hospital

My brother has suffered with severe pneumonia and was transferred from Salford royals ICU to Wythenshawe to go on the ecmo machine to repair his badly damaged lungs. He is still there and is due to come off the machine in the next day or so. The staff to me are unsung heroes without a doubt they and the machine have saved my brothers life and myself and my family will be eternally grateful.Thanks so much.
