"A&E visit"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Popped in A&E reception for advice on a stuck fish bone in throat. I was at the hospital taking father in law for a urology appointment. I didn't want to take up time as I know how stretched the NHS is. Nothing I tried dislodged the bone. The staff from reception to nurse and doctor were nothing short of fabulous. They booked me in and got the bone out so quickly that my father in law whose in a wheelchair due to a stroke didn't even have to wait for me. Just wanted to say thank you so much.
