"Emergency care-Kelbrook patient"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Anything else?

I was treated for concussion having been brought in by air ambulance on Thursday afternoon October 17th(2013). I would like to thank all concerned from the air doctor ( I don't know which service he is part of, but he chose Preston Royal as the best place for me to be taken to by helicopter, given my type of accident & the need for a CTC scan) to the consultant who assessed the results . Throughout my treatment I was treated with the utmost care & attention>I felt foolish for falling off a ladder but no- one agreed & just cheered me along with interesting conversation engaging me as much as possible. I was so impressed with your hospital ! It is very modern &, for me, very efficient. I do not remember any of the names even though all wore badges & neither my husband(who followed me in by car) nor I were really were thinking properly at the time but we both know that all the staff concerned with my case need to be fully thanked. In fact I will send a separate letter. This is for others to read . We need to appreciate our NHS!
