What I liked
Very little. Communication between staff, patient and family members was extremely poor.
Some professionals were hard-working, kind and very caring. Sadly, others were not so good, giving the impression that they were there just to perform a job. Those practitioners put little thought into the planning and delivery of care. The care given at the Royal Oldham is in stark contrast with that provided by other hospitals in the North West.
A friend trained as a nurse at the Royal Oldham. Her comment to me at the end of a visit - "I used to be very proud of being a nurse now I am ashamed to say I trained here". I can see her point, I would be too!
What could be improved
Standard of care given by some health care professionals
Restrictive visiting times
