I had a radical operation on my ear recently. To repair perforation, remove infection and infected bones. My care was excellent by all staff from the wards, operating theatres, recovery etc.
However I would like to add that having no surgery or emergency surgery at my local hospital (Fairfield, Bury) is putting a strain on the dedicated team at Bolton. On the morning of my op it took 21/2 hours to find me a bed and some ops were cancelled due to a busy night in A+E. This happened in January and I don't feel its fair for these people to be working under this strain. All hospitals in all towns should have A+E, emergency surgery, day surgery etc. Super hospitals are great but the system isn't coping and patients are miles away from family.
