"Lack of respect & dignity"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

My father was admitted to ward 4. He felt he was bullied by the consultant. My father said he would like to be resuscitated If required. The Gp told him it would be the consultants decision and spoke to him with lack of respect. This frightened my father and my mother had to stay on the ward 2 nights to make sure my dad was comfortable and safe. The Dr changed some of the medication but could not justify why. Would never recommended this hospital
