About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

I attended a and e with extreme pain, i was taken straight through but left on a chair not in a cubicle, about 2 hours later i was seen by a doctor who asked me questions in front of everyone then took me in a cubicle, the doctor did not understand any of my symptoms or very much English. The doctor told me to take paracetamol when i had been told by my dentist that i have a bad infection and was suffering a lot. I think this is unacceptable and wouldn’t recommend anyone to see this doctor again. I am now at home in extreme pain.
