"Better than i expected"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital / General surgery

I was taken into ward 18 ion Oct 2016, i always said i would never go in the vic, from the stories i heard, i cant complaion at all, the staff were so helpful and looked after not only me but all the patients in a dignified way, the food was eatable and i am fussy, and the bed changed dailty, no complaintes what so ever, one thing i will mention though what stood out, there was a health assistant on that ward, they want to be a nurse some day, you could see the commitment and drive in them to succeed, they for sure has devotion for this job, a can do attitude, none of the staff were bad in any form N.C
