"Newly pregnant, be prepared to wait!"
About: Royal Bolton Hospital Royal Bolton Hospital Bolton BL4 0JR
When we found out we were having another child, there was only one hospital we would return to, Royal Bolton when we found out we were pregnant with our first child they were great all the way through, very efficient, friendly and did what they said they would.
How wrong was I, after returning this time, they advised that they now do the booking in and scans on 2 separate occasions, not great for those that work but if it's quicker, I'll take that.
Our first appointment to check in.....2 hours, 3/4 of that sat in the waiting room!
Second Appointment for scan and see midwife.....3 hours, 2/3 of that sat in waiting room!
That's 5 hours all in all, most of which sat in the dull, dreary and very dated waiting room.
with our first child just over 18 months ago we were there 2, waiting around 45 mins.
Looks like the new efficient processes are new inefficient processes.
If you have children don't take them, they'll be bored out of there minds with no facilities for them, not great for families and single parents that don't have family around them.
The staff however are great, can't fault there attitude and professionalism.
