"Rapid Response Unit Bolton"

About: Bolton PCT

(as the patient),


I should like to thank all the nursing staff at the unit for their excellent treatment and friendly manners. I have attended on a regular basis for the last twelve months.

On every visit they have been very helpful and tried to make appointments to suit my busy schedule, I cannot thank them enough.

The only negative comment I would make is the change in venue, from Darly Court on Shepherd Cross St near my home to Breightmet Health Centre. It is a very inconvenient location, off busy main roads at the other side of town.

I will require treatment for the rest of my life and would welcome the choice of where the treatment should be administered.
