"Excellent care"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital / Accident and emergency

I visited A & E yesterday after being advised by a pharmacist to go, Being on holiday here I expected to wait the usual 3 to 4 hours to be seen. After giving my details in I was given an appointment at the primary care department, just 30 minutes later we were seen by a nurse who was fantastic, not only very pleasant, & polite but explained everything to me.

The antibiotics the nurse prescribed I have been given on several occasions and never before have I been advised what to take to combat the side affects, or why you should always finish the course. The nurse was excellent, as was the overall service we received.
