"thank you A&E"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I had to take my elderly father to a & e recently with 2 cuts to his hands after a fall. We were booked in by a very helpful and friendly receptionist and waited only a few moments to be seen by a nurse. They assessed his injuries and was very kind and understanding. After only about an hours wait my father was called in by a doctor who treated and looked after him with such great care and compassion. They truly were a credit to a & e dept and my father was so grateful to him. He even talked all the way home about how well he had be treated and totally respected by everyone. Its 2 yrs ago since he was in the same dept having had a heart attack - the service then was exceptional and it still is today. Thank you very much Oldham a & e
