Trafford General Hospital
Topic posted by Julie Summers (Flixton) ... dated:21 April 2004
I had to go to the Accident & Emergency Department the other night as my 3yr old daughter took seriously ill. I arrived there around 1am on a friday morning and I was upset on what I seen. There were around four or five lads around 17yr old giving the nursing staff endless amounts of verbal abuse, they called for security and when they arrived they handled the situation with such professionalism given the situation that security was out numbered and extinguished the incident with confidence. These security lads must put up with a lot of abuse to protect our nursing staff and doctors in every condition...

Ridiculous idea. If you’re obsessed with helping the NHS, campaign and vote for a party and prime minister that will not run it down until they can privatise it.

A sad bit predictable element of this lockdown is the number of people doing increasingly ludicrous things for likes on social media.

Tonight we will all go out at 8pm to give the NHS a round of applause which along with all the other workers supporting our way of life.

My suggestion is that Trafford general hospital as the first hospital in the  NHS is in need of support so my surgestion is that the people of Trafford surround the hospital with a walk around it making use of the footpath between the golf course and Bowers Ave say from 2pm clockwise and maintain the 2 meter distance if not this week may be next.

Unfortually I will not be able to attend as my wife is one of the shielded people.

Could all Urmston.net members ask and pass on this idea and show  our support for Trafford general hospital.

If you know someone in the media get publicitiy.

On the face of it, it seems to me that the problem is not with Netcare, they were there to do the work but the work was not given to them. The people to blame are the NHS for giving such a stupid contract to a private company and not fully understanding what was needed. The people at the top who arranged the contract should be made to pay either in cash or with their jobs and preferably both. They should all be named and shamed.

I think they should try to recover the unused millions and sue the private firm for Breach of Contract.  It is a disgusting waste.

Terrible news that The NHS signed a £70m contract with South African firm Netcare to carry out 9,000 operations a year at the Greater Manchester Surgical Centre in Trafford...but...

These goddesses dress in green and work hard trying to raise money for specialist equipment that helps put out the fire that is cancer. A more suitable name you couldn't ask for.

Boris. I was only reiterating what my GP had told me, and so asked the question on here. I didn't ask the question for nothing. As I said I didn't get into a debate and don't intend to go back directly to question her integrity, or facts, rightly or wrongly. I'd be just as concerned as the next person.

There is a tendancy at all hospitals to keep patient coming back to Out Patients every 6 months when often nothing has changed in the patients condition ie stable and well . The aim is to get patients who are stable back to the GP. Why come to the hospital if nothings changed in 6 months. The aim is to reduce "new to follow up". That is more new patients and less follow ups. However I can tell you this that if you are having problems with your condition you will not be discharged.

I've just returned from a very hard working day at Trafford General and nobody seems to know what you are talking about. Everything is normal except for some long-awaited-for maintenance jobs that today have finally been done!

Which doctor is saying this? Medical doctors are usually the last to raise anybody's eyebrows. Recently, some coulourful posters have been placed around the corridors and near the entrance of Trust HQ:

On Target For Success

We have achieved all our targets for 2008/9....and went on: reducing C dif and MRSA; beating A&E wating targets and in and out patient referral times and concluded with:

"Achieving financial balance and staying within spending limits."

I think your "doctor" should either see a doctor, or come out and speak to us.

Yes I am a nurse and I repeat - doctors, a reliable source - LOL

Sue. I would of thought that a doctor would be a very reliable source of information given that they deal with cases to/from TGH

Bob. The doctor in question is of long standing in her profession. I can only state what she told me, I didn't go into a debate on the subject, but left with raised eyebrows. I wonder what the performance figures are for TGH?
Any nurses that work there shed any light on the subject?
No smoke without fire!!!!!

I was in TGH today for my usual checks and was told by my consultant that they are under instructions to get as many as possible off their books as quickly as possible and they have discharged me today without any successful conclusion to my problems.

Evad - unless TGH has been incorporated and then that I've missed that, I'd suggest it's impossible for a receiver to be appointed.

Were these Doctors students perhaps, incapable of making a proper diagnosis? Maybe a second opinion is required!!! ;-)
