"Day surgery ward"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

I received a phone call on the 23rd Dec would I be available for surgery tomorrow Christmas eve, I accepted as I wanted to get the problem sorted. I was concerned that I would be home the same day but the care and attention I received was first class from the receptionist to my surgeon. I would recommend anyone to choose this facility.Thank you PS I rate the coffee after my op
