"Staff in the Blood Clinic were absolute Angels."

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

I attended the Blood Clinic today and I was absolutely dreading it. I am 63 and throughout my life I have had severe problems giving blood samples and had some traumatic experiences. It was only when I started coming to Chorley Hospital for blood tests fifteen years ago that one of the nurses, could take my blood without problems. I knew that they had retired since my last blood tests so I was very nervous and shaking when I went into the clinic. I needn’t have been. I had the calmest, most caring nurses it is possible to have. They obtained my blood sample effortlessly which was like a miracle for me. I cannot thank both nurses enough, they were wonderful.
