"Visiting Family from Germany"

About: Burnley General Hospital

My daughter and I popped over from Germany for the weekend, however, my daughter had a terrible eye infection (ulcer) this was treated in the eye department on the Friday night, the Dr saw us although they had officially finished work for the day. The service from the front desk, to the nurse, to the first dr, who then got us to see the eye specialist was out of this world excellent.... Thank you to all those who helped us, the friendliness was amazing, it was so comforting to know that we were in safe hands. I even talked to the security officer at the door, who, also was very friendly. From my daughter and me, we thank you so very very much, her eye is much better and she is on the mend.
