About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

This hospital needs to improve their services I have been a regular visitor for about 3 weeks to this hospital to my mum and I have seen the nurses are taking very long time to respond to patients when they need changing, switching off the loud noise drips machines, or calling buzzer etc. Also the doctor's needs to give individual patient extra time and importance so they can fully understand the situation of the patient, no matter how much busy they are or short of staff. This is a part I found the hospital is lacking and really needs improving.
