"Rapid Assessment Unit @ Royal Preston Hospital"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Anything else?

Cannot speak highly enough of Doctors and Nurses in the RAU at royal Preston. Whilst the Unit was very busy my wife was dealt with very sympathetically and from a Friday lunchtime to early the Sunday morning she received an X Ray, MRI scan and all the results which resolved her problem ie within 45 hours.

In particular mention must be made of the doctor in the Rapid Assessment and the nursing team. We were kept informed pretty much throughout the time in the Unit and again on the Saturday the senior Nurse updated us on progress of MRI scan.

Finally another doctor and his staff confirmed MRI scan results 10 am on the Sunday morning and reassured us concerning the episode my wife experienced.

Delighted that my wife has shown no after effects following her short illness and her life has returned to normal
