"Lovely hospital"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

I am just recovering from having four teeth removed and I cannot fault the staff in the Day Surgery department. Extremely reassuring and helpful nurses, took their time to make sure I was comfortable and calm both before I went into surgery and during recovery. They explained everything to do me and it was no trouble for them to help me out as best they could whenever I requested something. I was also very impressed with the consultant, a very pleasant person, who I could see was clearly very skilled and professional at their job and who put me at ease, making an already difficult procedure that much more bearable. The anesthiatist was also very helpful and explained everything as they were doing it. All other staff also faultless. Definitely the best care I have received from an NHS in my 25 years; I can only hope that if I (touch wood I don't) ever have to have treatment at one again, it lives up to the standard of care I received here. I will be telling everyone how excellent it was.
