"Excellent facility"

About: Whitworth Hospital

I have attended the minor injuries unit on two occasions. Both times I was treated very promptly by very pleasant and caring staff. I have also attended the Whitworth Hospital for a chest x-ray and for physiotherapy. Again I was seen very promptly, and again the staff were really pleasant. I have attended many hospitals over the years, for A & E, clinics, physiotherapy, x-rays, blood tests etc. Generally, the larger hospitals are providing a good service, but obviously are used by many more patients, which in turn is bound to impact on waiting times. Also parking at the larger hospitals is always a problem. I frequently recommend the Whitworth Hospital to friends. Locals should make use of the excellent service provided here, or they risk losing a very valuable commodity. I cannot praise this wonderful service enough!
