"One Stop Breast Clinic"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

My husband had an appointment to go to the breast clinic at Oldham Hospital. What a superb service. Although we were there 4 hours, during that time he was seen by a consultant who was fantastic with him because it can be difficult to get men to go for tests. He had all the tests, they even talked him into a mammogram something he had refused because of a past painful experience. Although breast cancer is rare in men he was not treated with any less care than any other patient. The staff kept us fully informed every step of the way. Then finally my husband was told he was clear with a full explanation. What a brilliant service and the staff could not do anymore.
