"I was admitted to the A & ..."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to the A & E Department on 22nd December 2008 suffering from a heart attack. The treatment I received was nothing short of excellent. The staff were competent and professional and I feel sure that their prompt care most likely saved my life. My partner, who was not with me at the time, would like to add that she and my son-in-law was also treated with respect and kindness. She gives particular praise for the receptionist in A & E, the docter and the car parking staff. I was at the hospital collecting boxes and had to leave my van there.

What could be improved

Nothing to add

Anything else?

There seemed to be so many people involved and as I was only there a short time before I was moved to Blackpool Victoria Hospital. I would like to thank them all for the care I received. I am now well and recovering at home.
