What I liked
i have been attending salford royal since 2000 for dermatology appointments where i have had the same consultant. My consultant is very nice and very knowledgeable aand i have no problems with either himself or his team or the nurses. when i was homeless last year and was turned away from gp surgeries, i rang him up and got repeat prescriptions of my medication. i am quite knowledgeable myself therefore not treated like an idiot and i am involved in all of my care. if i have urgent problems regarding my blood results i ring up my specialist nurse and get a prompt reply. i wont go anywhere else for my dermatology and when i moved back to manchester the first thing i said to my gp was i wanted to be referred back on to this consultant's caseload which i am very happy about. when i have problems with my gp regarding medication, my consultant fends for me. he tells me he is due to retire and i have told him i don't want him to as he is the best.
What could be improved
waiting times, if the consultant says ill see you in 3 months, as it's a busy dept i often won't get seen for 4 months. also my consultants secretary is a waste of space as she always has her phone on answerphone and i have told my consultant about this.
no i am generally happy with my patient care at salford royal and have said to my friends that salford royal is the better hospital in the area
