"Very impressed with the Cardiac Unit"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

I visited my friend in Chorley and South Ribble Hospital’s Cardiac Unit today and was highly impressed. The Ward was spotlessly clean. The atmosphere on the Ward was calm and peaceful. The staff were professional, caring and friendly. The Sister had a noticeable presence and was obviously effective in inculcating these conditions.The Doctor who came to take my friend’s blood was amazing. My friend has severe problems with having her blood taken. The Doctor was so patient, gentle and skilled that they were able to raise a vein and obtain blood samples effectively.
