Stott Lane, Salford, England, M6 8HD
Attending appointments, reminders by texts were excellent and not just a day before. Having casts put on and taken off after my operation - very well looked after. Only comment I would make is that when a cast is being removed for the first time at least, inform the patient of how loud the 'saw' is and that vibrations will be felt (it was my first time and it felt weird then made me laugh a little as the vibrations 'tickled' me).
I was admitted to Salford Royal Hospital suddenly after a scan showed I had a large tumour in the back of my head. The staff were so efficient at finding me a bed there & then & although it was clear that I was in shock & a little in denial of the severity of my condition they explained everything to me to make me understand why I needed to be there. I was placed in AEU Ward initially then HD7 after surgery. All staff on both wards work tirelessly to give me good care at all times from my admittance to my discharge. I would fully recommend this hospital as it has the best Neurosurgery Department in the North West as well as the best Neurosurgeons, Dr Pathmanaban performed my surgery & fully removed my tumour with no complications. Salford Royal definitely has the most caring & efficient staff. I was very grateful.
I was referred to Salford's Neurosurgical Unit from Manchester Royal. I was losing sight in my left eye. Mr Turner at Manchester Royal didn't think it was an optical problem. A CT scan showed a Pituitary Adenoma.I was then transferred to Mr Gnanalingham at Salford. He operated to relieve the pressure on my optic nerve. This was followed later by a second surgery to remove more of the tumour. The whole team, during these operations were very professional & curteous as was the care on the wards following the operations. I have since had a course of radiotherapy at The Christie Salford Royal. Once again the staff there were very curteous & friendly. During all the time between surgeries & radiotherapy there have been regular check-ups with both Mr G. & the Endocrine team. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr G. & his team at Salford Royal
