"Would strongly advise finding another hospital."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

Anything else?

Having been a an outpatient at the eye clinic for several years i am seeing quite poor service.

The hospitals current methon of treatment appears to be to book appointments for outpatients, then send out letters the day before to reschedule them another 6 mother later.

How on earth you are supposed to monitor serious eye conditions is beyond me. I can only think they would rather just pay out on any claims made against them than actually try to treat people.

If you are unfortunate to suffer any type of eye problems my advice would be to find another hospital.
