About: Royal Bolton Hospital Royal Bolton Hospital Bolton BL4 0JR
I was admitted to A&E yesterday, 30th October suffering from a very fast heartbeat. I could not have had better treatment anywhere. Starting with the lady on reception, through Triage and assessment and finally to Resuss where I was treated by the doctor and a staff nurse. It took a while to sort me out as I needed an infusion so I was in A&E for almost 4 hours. In all that time I was monitored carefully despite the ward being so busy. The doctor explained to me clearly what was happening and what would have to happen regarding future medication etc. I am so glad that the Royal Bolton is my hospital and all I can say is that every effort should be made to keep our A&E. My thanks to all the people I had contact with yesterday who proved to me that good care is possible in the NHS.
