About: Burnley General Hospital

Very dissatisfied felt i was not listened to,if you have a good job they may listen.no support given very minimal contact with school regarding childs problems .they completly ignored myself and the time they did contact school obviously didnt listen .in 2 years my child had 2 computer tests both with different results and ruled out a problem after this ,had one assessment done where wasnt fully completed and some of the outcome on that was explained out of 100 children my childs age 100 being the best 0 the worst my son came in at number 9 for a particular problem and told me but thats not bad enough pardon how bad does it need to be we had some therapy thats it yes we will discharge now oh thanks but myson still has the problems they have got worse thanks for that i could write alonglist but no point elcas very disappointing. I will say any other department used has always been great
