"Treatment on admission in A& E"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

By referral of my GP into A & E I was seen within 30 minutes and shortly thereafter, I was examined for my heart & lung condition, given an E C G, blood test were taken and within the next hour an x-ray was arranged. I was admitted to a hospital bed and my condition monitored over 24 hours. Treatment was given to change my medication and my heart rate and breathing were stabilised, sufficiently to allow me to be discharged with new prescriptions the day after admission. I cannot compliment enough all the doctors, consultant, nurses and support staff involved in my care.All were extremely kind, considerate and professional in treating and reassuring me. It was clear that despite their obvious work load and pressure under which they were all operating, they remained focused on the treatment of not only me, but also on the many others requiring their attention. I have no hesitation in complimenting all concerned and wish to thank them all, for the excellent care, consideration and treatment that I received. A big thank you.
