"I heard a patient discussed in a pub"

About: Trafford General Hospital

(as a relative),

I am a relative of a patient in Ward 4.

I am absolutely disgusted that a member of hospital staff openly discusses patients while out of work. I overheard a conversation a staff member was having at a pub. I want to let you know so this does not happen in the future.

My father has been in hospital and if I knew this is what happened I would have arranged for him to be moved.
