"i went to A&E at this hospital ..."

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i went to A&E at this hospital because i kept throwing up, the receptionist wasn't the friendliest person in the world and after about half an hour i was seen by a nurse, i was asked a few questions then told to sit back down int he waiting room. I then got called again by a member of staff. They took me to the childrens ward where the vomiting doctor was with a patient so i was aked to take a seat. I puked up again and they got me a bowl to be sick in. About 10 mins later we were still sat oustide near the front doors which kept opening and they kept coming back to check on me and to see if i was ok. They then bought me a blanket and wrapped it around me and told me i could take it home. That was easily the nicest person i have ever met in my life. I only hope that everyone in the NHS could be as nice and friendly as they were. The other nurses seemed to walk past and just look at me and do nothing. Couldn't thank this person enough. If you're reading this have a wonderful new year !!!! xx

What could be improved
