"A&E , G4 & Orthopaedics"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital / Accident and emergency Royal Bolton Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

In Feb 2014 I had an accident and fractured my T9 vertabrae.

I was taken to A&E and subsequently G4 and then orthopaedic outpatients. I have nothing but praise for all staff in each department. I was treated with dignity and empathy at all times and felt very well looked after.

This statement has more clarity as I am a senior nurse from a trust that is nationally recognised as an excellent trust and therefore, I was quite critical and expected high standards. I was not disappointed.

We as a nation are all too quick to complain and rarely give praise where praise is due however, I can't praise RBH enough. I hope this doesn't sound patronising as this is not my intention at all. Well done!
