"I was admitted to f7 assessment ..."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to f7 assessment ward on the 29th april 08 i was seen by a junior doctor who went through everything with me then said the consultant would be round soon.Within 20 mins he came he explained everything and was loverly,as this is only for assessments i was then transfered to t4 now this ward is a surgical ward not for people like me medical but because of the bed shortages the poor staff have to deal with both and i have got to say they are the BEST so thanks to you all even the cleaner not once did i see any staff not doing something they work so hard and i for one want to say a big thanks ,i was then see by a DR. Solomon and his junior both these were so nice and are sorting me out i am now waiting for an urgent mri scan so have come home if i have to go back in wouldnt mind this ward. lets stop slagging these hard working nhs staff of and give praise instead

What could be improved

the meals were horrid could not eat anything thank god i was only in a couple of days but its enough to make you ill .cold soup soggy sandwiches raw onion in cheese + onion pie breakfast cerial cheap or toast cold and soggy the staff that brewde up good cupper, if we want people to recover quikly try feeding them proper and im not a fussy eater but this is the worst food i have ever tasted( well cant realy say tasted as it was taste - less.

Response from Royal Oldham Hospital

Thank you for leaving your comments. During busy times, urgent medical patients can be admitted to surgical wards because they need admission. We do work hard to minimise this. We're sorry to hear that you didn't like the food. The catering teams welcome suggestions and we'll pass your comments on.
