What I liked
Macclesfield general is a good example of how a hospital should be run. The nursing staff employed there are in the job because they enjoy looking after people and it really shows. There is a feeling of conscientiousness and care in the whole place. This goes from the top, i.e. consultant surgeon, right down to the lady who brings the tea around the ward.
What a shame there are so few hospitals and health care professionals like Macclesfield general.
What could be improved
Food - should be clearer options for low saturated fat diets, particularly for those on the gastro wards.
This being said at least there is a commitment to sustainability in the fact that not everything comes in plastic and is thrown away, and the majority of catering services appear to be internal and on site.
