"Caring & truly dedicated staff"

About: Pendle Community Hospital

After my mother was transferred here after her stroke, we were immediately reassured by the staff on Marsden ward.

The staff want to get to know the patient and family to aid the recuperation process and cannot do enough to help. Everyone from the healthcare assistants to the ward manager greet us with smiles on our daily visits, which makes the idea of a long recovery easier to deal with.
