"Phone Enquiry"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

I am a Senior Doctor in the NHS and I telephoned Ward D5 this morning to enquire about my sister who was admitted there last night. My sister a vulnerable adult and I live over 100 miles away . The Ward Sister was rude and patronising to me on the 'phone and did not show any interest in my sister's case . I am disgusted and am concerned that my sister is in such a Ward with such an unhelpful and seemingly uncaring individual.....

Response from Royal Blackburn Hospital

Dear Anonymous I am really sorry that you've had such a poor experience of care and support at our hospital sites, and that you feel this has not been supportive of your sister's recovery. Also if you would like to talk through your visits and views with one of our Patient Experience team so we can understand the bits of this that could be shared with other teams as a way to make our services more personal we would really value this. You can either contact me (Wendy Stobbs) on 01254 734471 or email me on wendy.stobbs@elht.nhs.uk. Many thanks for your comment and apologies for the delay in a reponse
