"Day case unit Burnley -Thank you"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

I attended day case at Burnley for a gall bladder removal in March. I received first class care from handing my letter in at reception to being discharged home. Everything felt organised and ran smoothly which gave me confidence. Everyone was kind and helpful. I saw a student talking to an elderly lady and the compassion she displayed made me think she must have very good role models. i had a wobble of nerves and the nurse and anaethetist prevented me possibly losing my dignity by humorously and sensitively reassuring me . Thanks for that, I felt treated like an individual . My discharge was slick but unhurried and I left knowing exactly who to contact if I was worried and where to go the next day for follow up. I would definitely recommend anyone to choose Burnley day case unit
