"Never using this hospital again"

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital

After a few dreadful visits over thelasy few years patient care it's going from bad to worse. Partner stabbed himself with a knife, we went to a&e, consultant doesn't even clean the wound, no antiseptic, no injection. Puts 2 paper stitches and done, no recommendations what to do next. Had to buy antiseptic and clean the wound at supermarket car park(!). GP on call recommends another visit but never again. We went to Ormskirk instead and surprise different world all together! Wound cleaned, glued and stitched, staff extremely friendly. Never again going to Southport and avoid if you can!
