About: Royal Oldham Hospital

Today I had my very first appointment in the Antenal Clinic. My husband and I were greeted by a lovely member of staff on receiption who instantly made me feel at ease. When arriving at the hospital I was so nervous, walking through the main doors I was apprehensive. However, once I go to the Antenal Clinic everuthing ran smoothly. My husband explained to the receptionist that I was really nervous about having my bloods taken and she was very understanding. The midwife I saw was so lovely and made me feel very comfortable. I fainted while having my bloods taken and the nurse who took them was very calm and helped me come round. The clinic was spotless and very relaxing for a hospital.

Thank you for making my first visit as a nervous fist time mum a little more bearable :)
