"Pneumococcal Meningitis"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

We give grateful thanks to this unit for working together deciding on a course of treatment and thankfully helping a very dear family member make what seems to be a complete recovery from a deadly disease which is still very much in research stages. It is with very grateful thanks that he has agreed to gift samples as required in order for this marvellous team and beyond to further their understanding of what can be a life shattering experience. On this occasion we are all so very grateful for all you have done and wish you well and lots more successes in the future.

Thank you so very much. See you again on 8th June 2016.

Response from Andrew Heath, Lead in Patient Experience & Engagement, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on your family’s recent experiences here at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

I'm so pleased to hear that your family member has recovered well from such a terrible infection. I will be sharing your kind words with the teams involved in his treatment and recovery.

We have a patient story programme which allows patients and family members to relay their experiences directly to the Trust by video or audio recording. If you would like to participate in this please contact Eleanor.walsh@bfwhospitals.nhs.uk

Thank you once again for taking the time to share information about your family’s experiences.

With best wishes for the future,

Andrew Heath
