I've not really had any problems when using these two hospitals apart from once at Wythenshawe Hospital, when I was seen by a consultant who didn't seem to care. He told me I'd got gas and to go to a health food shop and buy something there. I went back to my GP after this but he wouldn't send me anywhere else for another appointment. Luckily, I know someone who works at Wythenshawe and I was able to get another appointment there. This time I saw a different consultant who sent me to WIthington Community Hospital and I was very happy with the service there.

The only thing it the waiting times for both hospitals are quite high: usually 3 - 4 months.
