About: Royal Oldham Hospital

I am very disgusted at the way my 90 year old female friend was treated at the royal Oldham hospital I found my friend on the floor of her home at 7 am Saturday morning after she had fallen she had been there since 8 pm Friday evening we called an ambulance and after treatment we arrived at the hospital at 8.30 am and she was not seen by a doctor until 1.30 pm and after she was examined by a doctor they found she had broken her collar bone she had been given pain relief by the paramedic in the ambulance, but while waiting she did say her arm was hurting I cannot believe that the heath service treat elder people this way because of the way she was found I would have thought that she might of been treated sooner after this incident I have no faith in the heath service you here how bad the heath service is well its all true.
