"visit to urgent care centre 12.09.14"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I attended urgent yesterday morning following a visit to my GP who thought i had suspected pulumonary embolism in my lung. The doctor who treated me in urgent was fantastic. He gave me the up most care was very polite and has excellent people skills. I could not fault him at all. If all doctors was like him there would never be any complaints. Im just sorry i cant remember his name i think he should be acknowledged for his excellence. What a wonderful man, he listened to me he carried out all investigations quickly and gave me reasurance. Excellent care received.
