"Looking after my mother in A & E"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

My mother has had a few visits to A and E but sadly on 29th April it was her last. She had a severe stroke and the ambulance brought her to Preston swiftly. She was treated with dignity ,respect and proper care. The senior consultant was up front about her condition and we as a family were involved in her care at all times. It was obvious she would not survive and she was given the best care for her last few hours in a side ward. The staff also looked after myself, partner and my sons at a very difficult time. I would like to thank them very much.
