Website and description of this hospital very misleading
We came last night with our 10month old with a high temp an suspicious rash - We were sent away last night by a security guard saying it was generally an appointment only facility and not a walk in, they stated 'members of the public don't come here usually without an appointment'.
Lots of friends and family I have spoken to are under the impression this is a walk in /emergency facility - obviously not. !
We ended up in a&e at Wythenshawe in the end as we left Altrincham hospital totally confused. We were triaged and assessed in prompt time and extremely happy with their service.
Lots of people I have spoken to are under the impression that the new Altrincham hospital is a walk in centre - clearly not !
I would hate to think our scenario could of been serious and other parents go here in the hope to be seen by a doctor.
