Very pleased with the service. I felt I was listened to and believed. Thank you
I have more confidence to cope with my problems, having the help you give me. Thank you
I was very impressed. I was hospitalised and operated on within 10 weeks and I was returned home as soon as possible. Thank you
No more waiting to be seen at the hospital time 11/2 to 2 hrs sometimes. More one to one. Just like going to see own doctor. The idea is perfect, better than hospital visits
An excellent service. Oldham are very lucky. So convenient to be able to choose a local venue. Short wait for appointment. Excellent service given.
An excellent service with minimum waiting times
I much prefer attending this sort of clinic than the hospital. It is much easier to access and more local to where I live
