"Faultless care"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

I visited the urgent care dept last night after an accident at work, with pain in my hand and side, I was seen very quickly by Andrew in triage who checked my blood pressure, temp etc then recommended x-rays, I was also offered pain relief which was very welcome, I was then given a number of x-rays at nearly midnight! Then I had a short wait until a nurse whose name I can't remember checked my breathing and examined me, she then discussed my x-rays with the doctor and told me i had a fracture in my wrist. An appt was made for me at the fracture clinic, my wrist was put in a brace and I was given pain relief, every part of what had happened etc was clearly explained to me. Please pass on my thanks, to the receptionist who was very nice and friendly, the poor girl in x-ray who had to finish late, and especially to the member of staff and the nurse who saw me who were excellent.
