"Orthapedic outpatients"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Anything else?

this is the second time i have complained about this hospital,but yet again it will fall on deaf ears.I went in for an operation and have had an infection ever since i have had it.Im in a tremendous amount of pain but telling the doctor was like speaking to yourself.I had a follow up appointment at 11am today and waited until 1pm to be seen despite having an appointment.The doctor saw my finger was/is badly swollen and going green and told me it was because i was on the wrong antibiotics.So what have they done,sent me home with more of the same? In summary the sooner they close this hell hole down the better!. Also i dont expect this message to be on these boards as the staff will probably hide it.
