"Dont be too tall to be treated."

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

Attended an outpatient appointment and being over 6 feet 6 inches was instantly judged as being 'frightening' being over weight also added to the problems as did defending myself which they suddenly claim is verbal abuse. Be warned if you not of normal size and if you dont touch your forelock expect to be discriminated against.
