"My Bilateral Amputation."

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Anything else?

On the 26/04/2013 I was admitted to CDH Leyland Ward, I was there to have both my legs amputated and I was so scared, and all of the staff from cleaners the heads & all the nurses + sisters help me. After the operation I was taken to ICU for a week fantastic care from all the ICU team. After spending a week in ICU I was moved back to Leyland Ward I was on that ward nearly 5 months having treatmen, I was so lucky to have been on that ward there wasn't one member of staff in 5 months that gave me cause to complain. To all the Staff on Leyland Ward & ICU I salute you. Thank you for your care and commitment. Graham Upton.
