"First class"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I attended the unit as an outpatient for a gastroscopy. I was very anxious but was treated patiently and kindly throughout. I was given plenty of time to ask questions and felt I was listened to and treated with respect. The explanations were clear and many of my fears were allayed. I knew what to expect and as a result was able to cope well with the procedure. Overall the staff could not have been better.
