"Mother in law passed around wards then found..."

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Anything else?

Absolute disgrace from start to finish mother in law admitted after major stroke (which they only told us weeks later) staff seemed not to know and afraid to talk, only found out details during discharge assessment, which seemed rushed.. then passed to discharge ward before ready stayed for a week then passed to another ward where my wife found her mother deceased at visiting times ... you couldnt write it!

I am very sorry you feel that the Trust has let you down. I have passed your comments through to the Ward Manager on the Stroke unit for investigation. If you would like to speak to someone in our Patient Relations department on 01253 655589, they will be able to register your concerns and ensure that they are thoroughly investigated. Regards Andrea
