"excellent care"

About: Burnley General Hospital

I went into this hospital on January 16th for a Hysterectomy,on arrival I was a little nervous about having the op.I Was reassured and put at ease from the start.In total I was on the Gynaecology ward for 5 days following my operation, for the whole time I was there I was looked after so well, every single nurse or Doctor that looked after me did so to the highest level, all the staff were lovely and made you feel welcome from the cleaners to the HCA to the nurses.They all did so much more than I would of expected and i wouldn't of got better care if I would of gone private!massive thanks to everyone.
