"Care of an elderly relative (92) was fantastic"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Our 92 year old uncle is recovering from throat cancer and has had intensive radiotherapy. Unfortunately he had a set back a few weeks ago and had to be taken to hospital from the respite home he's in at the moment. From the moment the Paramedics arrived to the attention he received at A&E he was treated with the most gracious care and dignity from everyone concerned. The Consultant who saw him in A & E was absolutely amazing with him and even came to the door to say goodbye and told us to return and ask for him if we needed to. Thankfully we haven't had to return as he's doing brilliantly but we would have no concerns whatsoever if we did have to return. A huge thank you to the Paramedics, nurses and Consultant - you do a wonderful job.
