MAY I say a big thank you to the Royal Bolton Hospital, pictured.

I have nothing but praise especially for the A&E department.

We have had to use this service three times over the past six months and each time we have received excellent service.

The efficiency and care has been exceptionally good.

The nurses and doctors looked after us with great care and kindness, and made us feel safe and secure in their hands.

Thanks to all the other back up services, x-ray, scans etc, which were all done very quickly.

Also thanks go to our own doctor’s surgery, Dr Saul and Partners.

We have experienced the NHS at it’s best, a big thank you to you all.

Mrs M Davies Lostock
