"emergency visit"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

on september 15th (evening) I had an eye bleed and contacted 111 who referred me to A and E dept where it was looked at and told to go home and I would be contacted the next morning by the eye dept for an emergency appointment. I was contacted as promised and went immediately to the clinic where I recieved immediate treatment. A brilliant thorough examination by the Doctor after which I was given a seven day follow up appointment. On both occasions I was treated with the utmost patience and care and cannot speak too highly of the staff.
