"dog bite"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

MY daughter was bitten on the face while caring for a dog at work . We went to the walk in centre in Oldham at 7pm, in March 2015 and where told to go to the A&E at Oldham for antibiotics and a wash out I cant understand why they didnt treat my daughter as they are aware that the A&E are rushed of their feet arrived at 8pm we only had to wait 10 minutes before we were seen by the nurse it was very busy ,we were seen at 9 15 by a doctor how explained that my daughter was covered by her tetnus jab and did not need antibiotics as they would make her feel worse and just to bath the area We were treated very well and didnt have to wait to long the walk in centre could have told me that info instead of sending use to the Royal Oldham no wonder the doctors and nurses are run of their feet. thank you to the nurse and doctor for their kind attention
