"To get staples removed after a bowel and hernia..."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I was told to come into the "Royal Oldham" to haves 18 staples removed from my stomach after a operation , the nurse that dealt with me didn't read the notes told be I want meant to be there abd I was wasting my time.... Said they didn't have the equipment there to do it but then 15 minutes later she " found" it , I was spoken down to like I was a stupid little kid even though I'm 22 they was told it could get infected after a big operation I had .... I'm very very unlikely to. Reccomend this hospital to any one ! 1out of 10 on my scale ..
