About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

It had been a busy night before and there was a hospital bed shortage which ment the cdc beds had been used elsewhere the staff handled this situation well and kept everyone informed as to what was happening. The staff on the main unit were very polite and helpful. When I had my angiogram the staff in the room were very good and put me at ease I can not fault them or the doctors. I can not fault the hospital or department a very pleasant experience definitely better than a previous experience I had at preston hospital I will definitely be recommending the vic.
