I’d like to say a massive thank you to the male receptionist who went above and beyond for me whilst visiting yesterday. I couldn’t walk due to breaking my foot. This man ran all over the hospital to find me a wheelchair. Made my visit so much more comfortable. Thank you so much your care and compassion was amazing. Regards Tracy

Genuinely caring staff who all worked hard as a professional team to sort out my medical emergency. I was dropped off as a very ill person and 36 hours later after staying overnight on Ward F7 walked out much, much healthier. A really big thanks to all concerned, you are a credit to the NHS.

A complete Joke of a place. I had 4 recalls to give blood samples for a pre op test. The last 2 were done just 24 hours before the operation was due at the operation hospital. I had to check with the operation ward that they had them. Oldhams reason for the recalls “I had rare blood” I complete LIE.

My step daughter was there for a day surgery appointment, arrived at 7.30am. She was still waiting to see a doctor for discharge at 8.00 pm. No wonder my wife died there after 2 days “care” in 2020. They should be ashamed of themselves, I’d sooner take my chances at home than be admitted there.
