"Almost everything but I had misgivings ..."

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Almost everything but I had misgivings about certain things but in my opinion that was due to staff shortages.

What could be improved

Things could be greatly improved with more staff but I guess thats a money issue. The Hospital staff work very hard and they have my greatest respect.

Anything else?

My wife was admitted on 07/12/2009 with a life threatening condition and she wasn't expected to survive but the surgeons didn't give up on her and she didn't give up and after 3 ops she survived.

My heartfelt thanks go to the Ambulance crew, the staff of A&E, the surgeons, the nurses in critical ward B and the nursing staff of C14.

Each and everyone of you played a vital part in saving my wifes life and I thank you all for everything you did. God bless all of you.
