I had been waiting for an urgent hernia operation which I was expecting to have at North Manchester General, so when I got a call asking if I could attend Rochdale the following day, I was rather apprehensive as I had never been to Rochdale and did not even know where the hospital was.
There is limited parking for pick up and drop off.
When I arrived, I was immediately put at my ease by the young man on reception, then after only a few minutes was taken through to be admitted.
I was seen by the registrar and anaesthetist.
The operation started about 40 minutes after my arrival and after it was over, the consultant came to speak to me.
All the staff were very friendly and caring and I was well looked after.
The whole procedure was explained to me throughout and I was sent home with painkillers.
The staff made sure everything went smoothly and made a not very pleasant experience as good as it could be.
