I brought my mum here with a trapped finger. My mum has severely dementia, the staff were Very helpful and understood the way she was. There is a nurse their who was very caring and understood the situation. They made sure she was seen quite quickly which makes a difference and she didnt have to go in the waiting room, otherwise mum would have caused lots of problems. The staff were more caring than the staff at North Manchester when I took mum their to A E. They didnt understand anything about dementia. They made my mum wait for the doctor for over 3 hours. I explained about mum but they said she would have to wait, they do not prioritise dementia patients
