"Excellant up to now, keep it up."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

What I liked

I have always been treated with respect and helped to make the right decisions about my care at the Rheumatology Clinics, by the consultant, the general nurses and especially the rheumatology nurse. I have a telephone number to ring if I am concerned about anything and when I had cause to use this last year got reasurrace, practical advice and a speedy appointment for treatment. I can't praise this service highly enough.

I have also have had X rays done and have been seen quickly, I like the changing rooms and the gowns are very respectful as well! (unlike Tameside).

I have also used the Chest clinc and was very happy with that service also.

I felt the need to write after so many negative comments.

What could be improved

Some of the blocks are a bit outdated and it is very difficult to park (I normally have an early appointment and then go on to work so using public transport is not an option). But have always found it clean.
