"Absolutely outstanding"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

From the care from paramedics who met me at my flat, to the team of nurses who observed me overnight and throughout the next day, to the mental health team who have supported me since my discharge the level of care I received was fantastic. Only down side is the quality of hospital food - a lot of choice but really doesnt make you feel any better. I hope my words of thanks are passed onto the team as they have been incredible in a really dark and difficult time
