"The nurses were excellent."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The nurses were excellent.

What could be improved

Having been asked to be there for 08.00a.m. only to sit in reception waiting for a bed until 11.30a.m. when I could have gone to work and not lost a days pay.

Anything else?

The next day I waited 4 hours for my prescription from the pharmacy. I could have taken the prescription, gone to the chemist myself and been home a lot earlier, and my bed would have been free for somebody else.
