"My daughter has stayed in the ..."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My daughter has stayed in the hospitals childrens ward numerous times. However her longest stay was in december of last year. The staff on the wad are exceptional , they are friendly , polite and most of all keep calm and collected in urgent situations. The care offered to my daughter from the the nurses , doctors and assistants is of a veryy high standard and i now dont panick in an emergency as i have been taught how to deal with my daughters attacks.

What could be improved

The food could be improved , although my daughter was off her food , it was awful it was all very cold. Also my daughter has quite severe asthma and does not like the ''Spacer'' had i not been studying play with children , i wouldnt have known how to deal with my daughers phobia of this peice of medical equipment. I think ther should be more for children and babies with asthma in oldham.
