"Stay away from this hospital if you value your..."

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

clueless and paperless A&E shambles Theres got to be a box to tick in that assessing doctors dont have access to record systems They are having to walk back and forth to a computer and commit what they read to memory investigative/pathology info it not their finger tips they are not rigorous or thorough - dont look at reference results and dont have a "picture" of your medical status substandard, russian roulette care with no continuity between attending clinicians/consultants . beware. the most dangerous elements are that they are so damn please with themselves urgent ward referrals and hospital communication is laughable. You can't dumb down medicine more than this. They need to put up a disclaimer because this is no national treasure

Response from Stepping Hill Hospital

Thank you for your feedback. We are always looking to improve our services and part of this includes the introduction of ‘i-pad’ style devices in A&E. The devices are secure and only hold patients’ records. Their use gives staff more time to see patients and help information be shared more quickly between hospital staff and GPs. Please contact Patient and Customer Services if you would like to discuss our paperless system. You can telephone 0161 419 5678 or email PCS@stockport.nhs.uk.
