Response from Patient Experience Team, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on the NHS Choices website regarding your son’s experience

We were extremely sorry to hear about your son’s experience which is certainly not the standard we expect to provide.

We take all issues surrounding patient experience very seriously and would very much like to hear from you directly about your son’s experience as it is difficult to respond fully to the specific concerns you have raised without being able to investigate these in detail. If you contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0161 276 8686 or by e-mailing pals@cmft.nhs.uk they will be able to discuss this with you.
