"Wonderful, helpful staff; great urgent care..."

About: Rochdale Infirmary

I went to the Urgent Care Centre, yesterday 05/01/2016 due to having extreme chest pains and being short of breath. After minutes of booking myself in at reception I was seen by one of the nurses, taking my blood pressure and was then soon seen by the doctor.

It was all very quick, worrying before I arrived that I would have to be waiting for hours to be seen. The nurses put me at ease and the doctor was very informative and explained I would be in there for most of the day, having to be put on a drip to lower my heart rate and to undergo blood tests and x-rays.

I would like to thank all the staff that helped me and made me feel comfortable throughout the day and I'm already starting to feel on the mend, thanks to the antibiotics I was prescribed.

Thank-you again and wish all the staff a happy new year!
