About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was rushed to A and E with a suspected stroke and had a reasonably lengthy wait.I was transferred to the Medical Assessment Unit where the staff were wonderful.(inc the Consultant.Moved to B2 were the staff were also extremely good and helpful.

What could be improved

The only difficulty I had was on discharge which was rushed and confusing to me (as a the patient -I was still muddled) and to my family who were not involved in the process and perhaps should have been .My discharge details are also inacurrate which may explain why I was discharged so fast without family involvement.
