"Summer Hols in Ward 24"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Daughter rang hospital to say I wasn't well. Immediately put into Bio-isolation (supposed it was a precaution) But never have received better treatment Xray, MRI Colonostomy . Only to be diagnosed with IBD, Croyns disease, Colitis.

Drips possibly 10x2litres +all the steroids that could be taken! currently at home recovering and building up my strength, believe me it knocks the stuffing out of you.

My best wishes to the staff (all of them) although the Low Fibre Diet leaves a lot to be desired although seemingly was made for me specially.

xxxx to you all

Sorry cannot score same sex accommodation!

Thank you for taking the time to tell us of your experience when you were recently a patient on Ward 24. Staff work hard to provide a high standard of care and it is always extremely pleasing to read of the impact that has on our patients. We were sorry to read your comments and have shared them with the catering staff to enable them to reflect on your feedback and to see, what, if any action can be taken to improve the low fibre diets offered.
