About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

Still waiting 6 weeks for a referral to a consultant, despite medical team at Bolton Maternity Unit trying to push it through. Wish my GP had referred me to Bolton instead of Wigan, I will request this on all matters in future. Bolton are miles ahead of Wigan, Wigan staff should be sent there for training, they are an embarrassment to the NHS.

Response from Susan Heighway, Patient Relations / PALS Manager , Patient Relations / PALS, Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for your posting in respect of your wait for an appointment. The Trust would not wish anyone to encounter any unnecessary delays in receiving an appointment and I do hope that this has been resolved now. If you could contact the Patient Relations Department with more details we would be happy to look further into this matter for you.

Kind regards
