"worst experience of my life"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

What I liked

I liked the staff on ward T4

What could be improved

basically time keeping i went in yesterday morning which i was sent in by my GP was told i was going to be operated on later that day then 9pm i was told i would not be seen today it would be in the morning so i then went home till half 8 in the morning on an empty stomach bare in mind i am 6 months pregnant not eat a great lot because i had to starve myself the day before i then got put on ward T6 were i got told of doctors etc i would be going down in the morning which at 5pm i went and asked what was the hold up they said i had to wait another 5 hours for me to be seen bare in mind they only put a drip on me at 4pm and gave me pain kills at 5pm they didn't keep up to date with my antibiotics which i had to take 4x a day along with pain killers i had no option to discharge myself and go home i was also seen by the surgical who checked my problem out and then out of the blue said to me you know this could kill your baby clear s day they were the surgicals worlds i broke down that was the last straw for me. I am now looking at going private i am changing hospitals with my mid wife because i do not plan to have my baby boy in that hospital.

Anything else?

Worst hospital in the northwest.
