"Trip to A &E"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I attended the A & E department at oldham hospital on the afternoon of 14th April 2016 after falling off my horse and injuring my shoulder. The whole time we sat in the waiting room listening to the 6 o'clock news complain that A & E waiting time are worse than ever. However, my experience couldn't have been more different! The staff that looked after me were incredible! From the triage to the X Ray department to the doctor that reviewed my X-rays everyone was professional, caring and efficient. And to top it all I was in and out within an hour!

I work for the NHS myself and really believe that staff and services don't get the credit they deserve! One very happy service user. Thank you.
