"Negligence of hospital no medicine & pharmacy shut..."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

Grand daughter has chronic Asthma, was admitted, saw her own hospital consultant. He ordered anti biotic sunday morning 10am. At 9pm still not had it. Staff said, they had enough on ward for weekend but used it up, so called in pharmacy, as they dont open on weekends ???? However that also ran out by sun morning, & pharmacy would not re-openhild getting words, new doctor comes at 9pm, said she should be on this from this morning, find some. I am now trying to speak to hospital managment, & there is no one in hospital, they can only contacted at home by beeper, by senior staff at childrens ward, & only in emergency. They call this a super hospital, with a pharmacy that is not open 24/7 & one where there is no facility to get a prescription from outside. The place is pathetic.
