Suffering from severe neck pain and with the meds for my GP having no effect my husband took me to Blackburn A&E. They were very busy and as soon as I was seen by the triage nurse she recognised my pain and made it her immediate priority. She was thorough and very caring. The doctor was very caring and again did his best to reIieve my pain and brought a consultant to see me.
I was xrayed and taken to the MAU where the staff were the best I've come across. I was seen by several doctors and was told quickly the results of my xray. The communication between all departments and members of staff was excellent. The staff nurse Ian Sturdy couldn't be more suited to his job. He showed compassion, patience, and humour. He made time to listen and talk to the patients in distress and nothing was too much trouble. What a wonderful Ward.
