My Father attended A&E in October with a severe cut to his leg. The nurse applied strips to seal the wound and a bandage. The nurse informed me as we were leaving that a district nurse would visit him on Saturday to re-dress the wound as it would need re-doing every two days to avoid infection. I asked the nurse for a contact number in case they did not come. She assured me that they would and not to worry. No one came on Saturday, when he received a call he was instructed to attend the walk in centre in Ashton to have the leg re-bandaged.
His sight is poor and because he could not read the machine he could not enter his registration and now has a parking fine. His leg is now infected and has been given a prescription for anti-biotics.
To say we are unhappy with the shambolic nature of his treatment is an understatement. He has also been informed that he can no longer attend Ashton and needs to go the Cornerstone in Manchester. We will be pursuing this matter further.
