My mother suffered a fall while visiting Eastbourne to scatter my dads ashes resulting in her having an operation to replace her hip. In her obviously distressed state Brighton hospital attempted to get her transferred nearer home. On Tuesday Bolton agreed to take her and having waited 3 days for a bed we were told a bed was available on Friday 12th June. Her transport was arranged and her belongings packed, then as the transport was on its way they decided that as her GP was in Hindley they wouldn't take her. Obviously her GP had always been in Hindley and you can only imagine how distressing this was for her. How cruel can people be, such a caring hospital
