"Professional and efficient"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

What I liked

Was very quick and efficient

What could be improved

Not enough Car Parking spaces. Although my visist did conincide with visiting times.

Anything else?

Having read some of the previous comments I was very sceptical about attending the A&E department but I have nothing but praise so felt compelled to write a review. Attending for a minor accident I was seen after approximately 1 hour. Waiting times were estimated at 2-3hours. Having been assessed I was referred for an x-ray and was called almost immediately for this. By the time I got back to the waiting area I was called through to see the nurse practioner again to review the x-ray. Having been assessed and discharged I was referred to one of the Hospital Clinics. On ringing the next day for an appointment at the clinic I was surprised to get an appointment within a couple of days. My overall experience of the hospital on this occasion was that it was very efficient. All the staff I encountered were friendly and professional.
