About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Anything else?

my partner has cancer and had to be taken into hospital due his temp being very high, first he had to wait 2 hours for the ambulance to pick him up. when there he had bloods taken for testing, also he need to have a chest xray ,the blood were done easily but we arrived there at 12am and it was 4am before the xray was done. we were told to wait till 6am for an answer about the results, but 6am came and went .it was 8am.and we had to ask. at 1pm the next day he was then ask to go to chemo unit for his line clean that was done quickly but as my partner had a funny turn there, he had to stay and wait for abit longer, the nurses told he the doctor would have to check him and give him a prescription which he may have to wait for hours before he gets it. why is it so long all he has done is wait for doctors first to check an xray then do a prescription why is it all other staff can done things easy and quickly but they cannot.
