"Absolutely delighted. A very caring team"

About: Burnley General Hospital

Very heartwarming to read all the positive reviews.

I visited the unit today to have my cataract op.

All the staff were very friendly and explained exactly what was happening all the time.

The consultant was very assuring during the op, explaining what was happening.

All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Thank you to all the staff.
