What I liked
came to Royal Bolton Hospital with my son who was 24 complaining of chest pains. A&E were very good, he had a chest extra, ecg and blood tests. His blood was raised so they transferred us to the medical assessment ward where we waiting 5 hours before seeing a doctor. The staff kept trying to get doctors but nobody came. When a doctor did turn up they were brilliant - the care was brilliant and a VP scan was booked for the Tuesday afterwards. The next day they had a vacancy for the VP scan and rang him and he attended and needed no further treatment. Its best to get things checked out by the professionals but the 5 hours wait was not acceptable. It was a bit like buses - 1 does not come along for ages and then 2 appear !!!!
