"A Great Service"

I visited the walk in at Accy Vic on Saturday morning as I had been to Blackburn A and E five days before but feeling no better. I only went as a Nurse said my breathing wasn't right (I felt a pain bothering both these services). Anyhow so glad I went. Blackburn had not diagnosed in fact a doctor never saw me in five hours!! The young Dr. at Accrington soon had the measure of the problem, named it, prescribed the correct medication (wasted five days on the wrong stuff!!), told me how to do self physio exercises and two days later I feel so much better -THANK YOU so much. I have nothing but the highest praise for all the staff from reception, nurses and Dr. all od whom treated me correctly.
