"Great place/Amazing people"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Have just spent 5 days on Ward 2c after having an operation on my spine. Saw the consultant after being referred from Blackpool Victoria for my MRi results, who went through everything and was given my date within 2 weeks. Right from the off, arriving at 8.00am on the Thursday morning of my op to leaving the following Tuesday, all the staff were brilliant. I was lucky enough to get my own room for most of my stay. Everyone involved in my aftercare, from Nurses, Student Nurse's, H.C.A's, Physio's even the Domestics always had a smile and made sure I was comfortable and were always happy to chat, as the first 48 hours after my op I was hardly able to move. Felt safe at all times even when I had a little setback when help was just a button push away and all involved always had the patients best interests at heart as well as maintaining dignity. Would like to say a huge thanks to you all for all your hard work. NHS should be proud to have you.
