Macclesfield Hospital praise from Paddy McGuinness
MACCLESFIELD Hospital staff are basking in the glow of a compliment from a celebrity.
Comedian and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness took to Twitter to praise staff after his son was treated at the hospital.
Paddy, who lives in Prestbury and is the presenter of ITV dating show Take Me Out and star of Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere, said the doctors and nurses were ‘amazing’. He wrote: “Thank you so much to all the doctors and nurses at Macclesfield Hospital who looked after my little boy and made him better! #NHS #Amazing.”
Chris Gorman, media and communications manager at East Cheshire NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said: “We are delighted to have had this feedback from such a high profile public figure.
“It was very nice indeed of him to take the time to write it and it really means a lot to all of the staff in the hospital. We’ve not told all the doctors and nurses about it yet but we have included it in our weekly newsletter and we are sure when they see it they’ll be delighted too.”
He added: “It’s always great to hear feedback like this from any patients.”
