"Outstanding level of care."

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

I recently had a hemthyroidectomy and was admitted to S.A.D.U. I was really nervous about the procedure but the staff were so helpful and thorough they spoke to me before I had surgery and put me at ease. They were superb from start to finish. Once I'd had surgery I was put on ward B 20 again the service and care they provided was outstanding. All staff I encountered were polite and friendly and even made me laugh at a time I didn't think possible. I was truly made to feel at home and welcomed by all the staff and would definitely recommend. Thanks for everything you made a worrying and stressful time for me a lot easier to manage!
