"Consultant&staff, Anaethetist & staff"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I was admitted to your hospital o thursday27 November for a shoulder replacement(t7) I was seen by the anaethetist before my op and he was so reassuring, (I dont have a good medical history) He explained exactly what he was going to and I felt a lot better. I also saw the registar who also put me at my ease. The staff on the ward were excellent! When I went to theatre along with one particular member of staff were two anaesthetistswho gave me a Nerve block? and then he put me to sleep. The after care in recovery was good and then back to the ward. After an hour I was sitting up having sandwiches and a cup of tea. The anaethetist came to see me the morning after he was pleased with how everything went. The Consultant was ringing to see how I was obviously a very busy man) Two days later on the Saturday I was on my way home, this is the first time I have been in the 'Royal' and I cant praise you all enough. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned! Mrs Brenda Collingwood I am recovering really well
