Response from Royal Blackburn Hospital

I am very sorry to hear of your experience of your daughters care and treatment within the Orthopaedic department at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

I am really keen to have the opportunity to look into this for you and would appreciate it if you could contact me with some more information.

You can contact me Helen Ritchie on 01254 734471 or alternatively you can email me at Helen.ritchie@elht .nhs.uk.

We take all comments very seriously and this is certainly not how we would want our patients and families to feel after visiting our services.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you

Helen Ritchie, Senior Patient Experience Facilitator
