"Riding Accident"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

This was my first ever visit to a hospital for myself and I cannot praise the staff and doctors highly enough for their efficient and courteous treatment I received. I had had a bad fall from my horse whilst warming up for a competition and had some memory. Blackburn A&E carried out blood tests, blood pressure monitoring and CT scan - during each of the stages I was kept updated on progress and what was likely to happen next. The building was spotlessly clean and light and airy. I felt I was being really well cared for and wish to thank all the staff who were involved in my case on the day. I couldn't have been in better hands.
