"Very caring nurses"
About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Royal Albert Edward Infirmary Wigan WN1 2NN
I had trouble with an abscess and was frightened that i might need an operation, but my GP said he would make me an appointment with the surgeon instead of going to A and E. I was sent to the surgical assessing unit where I had blood tests and given painkillers. I was constantly updated by the lovely nurses because the surgeon was still operating in an emergency. The surgeon rushed to see me and managed to cut the abscess out while i was there giving me a numbing injection. I was able to go home that day with painkillers and antibiotics and no need for an operation, phew! The nurses were so busy because another patient was very confused and shouting and kept trying to get out of bed, but they were all so kind to her and made sure we were all seen to. The NHS keeps getting a bad name but i could not fault this ward, everyone was just brilliant, thank you
