About: Rochdale Infirmary

Iv never felt the need to leave a review on any medical care iv had in the past . Its either been ok care or totally awful . I actually had 1 nurse scream in my face a few years back & when my partner asked for a telephone number to make a complaint we were given the direct number of the nurse in question . She actually with held tablets that she new i needed , saying they were not in stock , i new in my heart she wasnt telling the truth . My partner then went back up to oldham hospital & spoke to the sister & the tablets were in stock ... that nurse was playing god with my health & was so mean . Just what you dont need when your poorly , anyway i never followed that up as i was just glad to be home & on the mend . What has brought me to right this review is the amazing care i got at the day surgical unit at rochdale under the care of a consultant, the nurses , theater staff ... infact everyone . To find a consultant that actually cares & doesnt just view you as a piece of meat but a real person is so refreshing . So i just wanted to say a big thank you . I just hope these reviews get read
