"Excellent A & E Service"
About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Wigan WN1 2NN
I had reason to bring my son to A & E in the early hours one day in February this year. Kidney transplant patient. He was on the verge of collapse, blood pressure had dropped dramatically. We arrived by taxi, luckily traffic was light. From going through the doors to coming out of Wigan 2 days later, after they have stabilised him, to be transferred to Salford, they dealt with him with all the speed, skill, expertise that the doctors and nurses possessed. I was just amazed at what I was seeing. Every second counted and believe me they used every second. I will be forever grateful because I believe they saved his life that night. If we had had to travel any distance I shudder to think what may have happened. He also had to be admitted again a few weeks later with similar symptoms but not quite as severe, this time. We have a population of over 300,000 in this borough, we need and 24 hr A & E. This service they give at Wigan Infirmary is second to none. This A & E must survive.
