"Something to consider ?"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

Anything else?

Can you please send a message to the doctor & staff on duty in A&E on Sunday 29th - Monday 30th Dec evening shift . They were wonderful with my son but sadly missed the fact that he had glandular fever & an allegy to penicillin ( on top of their accurate diagnosis of severe tonsillitis) . This was picked up very quickly by Fairfield A&E staff the following day when he deteriorated by simply doing a blood & swab test .My son became very poorly & needed to be admitted on drips etc . would not complain about the speed & care the staff at oldham a&e gave but just thought this maybe somthing to consider for future diagnosis of patients with similar symptoms .
