"wonderful care and assistance received"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

After being diagnosed with a brain tumour at another hospital I had to attend oldham A & E for further scans. After an hours wait for triage as they were very busy I was seen immediately by a wonderful consultant. They arranged for my existing scans to be transferred onto their own pacs system which did take a while however this saved me from further MRI scans. They were so kind and considerate towards me and I can't thank that consultant enough. What they did for me meant that Salford hospital could then view my scans and within 24 hrs I was contacted by them with an appointment with a neuro surgeon 4 days later.

Since then I've had surgery and 8 weeks later am recovering very well. The efficiency between both hospitals was amazing and my care and treatment was fabulous. Thank you so much to my consultant in Oldham A & E for your assistance at a very traumatic time
