"Proud of our NHS after visit"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

Anything else?

My 8 year old has been unwell and I was advised through Bardoc to take her to Rochdale Urgent Care Centre. (22:30pm) At this time of night, I was a little uneasy about taking my daughter to the centre but upon arrival, the reception staff sent us to a separate family room and the Doctor called for her within minutes. The Doctor was outstanding. A young, friendly man whose caring nature was obvious as soon as we were seen. My daughter was put at ease, and the Doctor examined her, diagnosed her problem (Tonsillitis!) immediately, and even found some anti-biotics to tide her over until we could see the GP so we didn't have to search for a late-night pharmacy. We left the hospital feeling relived, happy and proud of the NHS. The staff on tonights shift were fantastic and should be very proud of themselves. Thank you!
