Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

LOTS of read­ers shared their stories af­ter we fea­tured Nick En­twistle, who suf­fered a heart at­tack when he was 26 and joined our cam­paign to keep the A&E at Mac­cles­field Hos­pi­tal be­fore it was an­nounced it had been saved. Val Lloyd: Time is of the essence and Mac­cles­field A&E fa­cil­ity must meet the needs of Mac­cles­field, not be sur­ren­dered to cost cut­ting. Who makes the de­ci­sions, how would they feel if they had to get a pre­cious child with an asthma at­tack or a di­a­betic coma to treat­ment within crit­i­cal life sav­ing mo­ments – or put their lives at risk in a rush hour traf­fic jam to wher­ever. Paul Bona: Cou­ple of years ago I was badly in­jured by one of my horses try­ing to jump over me and I re­ceived some nasty head and fa­cial in­juries. I spent some time as a guest of Mac­cles­field A&E. The care that all the staff gave me was bril­liant, re­ally great work from everyone that help me make a full re­cov­ery. Must say the food was very good and the nurse who looked af­ter me all the first night was so car­ing and cheer­ful. Michelle Howle Freude­nau: My daugh­ter was rushed in and we just got her to the­atre in time be­fore her ap­pen­dix burst!! Who knows what would have hap­pened if we had to travel to Stock­port or fur­ther. Eileen Proc­tor: I had DVT af­ter fly­ing, so grate­ful to the won­der­ful care I re­ceived from the A&E unit, many thanks. An­drew Nor­bury: I was in ICU for a week!! Amazing peo­ple! Your life is more im­por­tant than money!! Philip Gilchrist: It seems to me we are al­ways fight­ing to keep that which is vi­tal to our well being and is run­ning well. Andy Clay­ton: It is to­tally dis­gust­ing that the nump­ties in Parliament have been al­lowed to de­stroy and con­tinue to kick the NHS while it’s on its knees. I had to at­tend A+E in March this year with pneu­mo­nia – ended up being ad­mit­ted for a week, then I was un­for­tu­nate enough to have to re­turn to A+E in May when a re­ally bad in­fec­tion set­tled on my spine and caused me to spend an­other 7 weeks in hos­pi­tal. Once my in­fec­tion had been brought down enough and I could walk again, I was dis­charged but had to re­turn ev­ery morn­ing to the Acute As­sess­ment Unit (which is in A+E ) for a fur­ther 14 weeks of i/v an­tibi­otics. If it hadn’t been pos­si­ble for me to at­tend in A+E ev­ery morn­ing,
