About: Royal Oldham Hospital

What I liked

I had my daughter by emergency c section on 13th October within 2hrs of arriving at ROH, after initially planning a home birth. I cannot praise the staff enough. This was my first pregnancy and I was very concerned as things did not go as we had planned. But from the moment the ambulance man arrived at our house and helped me into the ambulance, to the team who met me on the labour Ward and explained what would now happen, to all the staff on mat 2 and the community midwife who came to the hospital with me and stayed for the birth, all were kind, caring and patient. I cannot praise them and thank them enough for delivering my daughter safely.

What could be improved


Anything else?

Thank you to you all.
