"Absolutely joke!!"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Came in to antenatal clinic for an induction date as I'm 40 weeks plus suffering bad with spd,extremely depressed with not sleeping due to pain and the fact that baby is back to back , waited a while to be seen by a student doctor then to be seen by another doctor who thinks it was ok just to write a prescription and send me on my way, the level of care I have had from this place is a joke and the midwifes aren't much help either I am at my wits end and I'm actually terrified to give birth in such a hospital the level of care is appalling too, not to mention trying to phone for an appointment the phone just keeps ringing all day never any answer.I would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of having baby at this hospital to change before it's too late
