About: Wythenshawe Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had an accident, sustained a badly broken shattered wrist, and facial injuries, and saw a doctor and staff nurse within about eight minutes of my arrival on a busy, Saturday night, around 9.30 pm.

I was given pain relief, x-rayed, and my arm was re-set and plastered, and I was sent to the the casualty ward by 1.30 am to be be assessed by a surgeon that morning.

I was made very comfortable, given regular obs', and I have to say again that all of the staff were fabulous. So comforting and caring.

The follow up treatment has been equally good.

Anything else?

Only that 'Outpatient' care has also been so kindlly and good.
