"Walk in out of hours"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

I was taking my 6 month old daughter to get her breathing checked as she had a chest infection. As I walked into the smallest waiting area I was made to stand next to a child covered in chicken pox so I turned and walked straight back out. I was going to be making my daughter even more ill. The lady and child should of been seated somewhere away from everyone else now because of the stupidity of hospital staff I now have to wait 2-3 weeks to see if my daughter has caught chicken pox. I just hope there were no oregnant ladies greeted by this lovely surprise. The nurse said it's probably better for my daughter to get it and I replied not at 6 months and she then agreed. I'm going to be taking this further
